Michael Rosen Poet Study
Childhood memories of the poet’s parents, continuing conversations, are interspersed throughout this book. He draws on observations of the minutiae of everyday life within his own family and beyond, memory and musings on language play a significant role. Many poems have the humour we’ve come to expect from Michael Rosen but these are often at least tinged with matters that are serious and thought provoking.
