    One thought on “The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea: Poems”

    1. I sometimes wonder if my opinion of this book has devalued my integrity as a literary critic. I loved it, and so few other poetry lovers seem to. Perhaps in the same way some people are moved to tears by a Rothko painting while others see nothing but a big red blotch, readers of this book will find their hearts profoundly stirred only if they want them to be. Haddon's poetry captivated me because for the most part, I felt without thinking. It asks you to trust it. I found trusting it a very enjo [...]

    2. 0. Fine Author, Worse WorkMark Haddon is a fine author. There is no question that he is a master of prose and deserves all the attention The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time received. That said, I don't have a high view of some parts of this book. In some sense you can't keep a good author down, and even in their worse works they will shine in some places anyway. There are a few niggling concerns I have with his poetry that I want to give, then I want to say what I liked about it.To [...]

    3. I love this book! The poems are so vivid and imaginative and so varied - from the surreal to the quietly insightful, from the funny to the moving. I've read the book twice and may read it again.

    4. Coolest cover ever with a moveable paper wheelunfortunately, I only liked a couple of the poems contained within.

    5. "In truth, the dwarf worked in a betting shop / and wore an orthopaedic shoe. / The ugly sisters were neither sisters, nor, indeed, women, / nor were they remotely interested in the prince." –‘The Facts’ Haddon’s subject matter is wide-ranging and, characteristically, quirky. He deconstructs the everyday, thereby raising interesting questions for the reader. Such as in ‘The Penguin,’ which is about a trip to Cotswold Wildlife Park, where he muses, ‘A whole world and every part of i [...]

    6. A collection of poems written by Mark Haddon, the celebrated author of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHTTIME, ranging from short paragraphs to a multi-section story and covering a wide range of topics from books to the death of a loved one.Most noticeably Haddon uses a TON of language and symbolism. Some of it is very light like terms using the word dog and onomatopoeia for barking noises. Other times it is rich with classical allusions and obscure references. Thus it can provide grea [...]

    7. I read this book for #15 of #26bookswithbringingupburns: 'a book of poems'.I have basically never read poetry for fun before. Especially not a whole book by one author. Anyway, I picked this because I enjoyed Mark Haddon's novels The Curious Incident and A Spot of Bother. From that I could deduce what his poetry might be like, and I was right: bloody random. It was quite surreal and many pieces on first reading seemed to make little to no sense, but after re-reading you can sortof see what he is [...]

    8. Vecchio, nuovo, preso in prestito, bluIl giorno in cui ci siamo incontrati. Questa busta inaspettata. La mia maglietta del San Francisco Mime Troupe che indossavi per gingillarti nell'appartamento, le cui maniche tagliate si abbinavano Ai tuoi occhi. Quella notte senza sonno. Questa notte senza sonno. La faccia che indosserò per stringerti la mano e augurarti il meglio. Il modo in cui mi sentirò quando lo faccio. "Paper Moon". La nostra canzone. "Jesu,Joy of Man's Desiring". Il mio Ella Live a [...]

    9. I read Mark Haddon's collection of poetry shortly after I read and thoroughly enjoyed his most famous novel "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime". That said, I didn't enjoy his poetical work nearly as much. I couldn't find any rhyme or reason or connecting theme between the selected works, and couldn't find any idea of rhythm or intention within individual poems themselves. It seems to be a lot of imagery and little idea. With the exception of the poems "Cabin Doors to Automatic" an [...]

    10. This is Mark Haddon's new book of poems. I did not like it.There is one poem that I felt lukewarm feelings for. Read it below.Overall Grade: 1 out of 5 stars.DaysLeuconoe, stop examining yourBabylonian horoscopesand wondering what kind of deaththe gods have got in mind for us.We'll never know. Accept it.This winter pummeling the ocean on the pumice rocks of Tuscanymay be our last.Or not. Be sensible and pour the wine.This life's too short for longingand the clock spins as we speak.Days come and [...]

    11. OK, so it gets better from around page 30. Maybe I need to re-read the first 30 pages now that I 'get' him a little more. Having not read Buchan I missed most of the allusions in that particular piece, however I think one poem from within it stands alone quite beautifully anyway:Chapter 10 - AuraSo small a thingthat little room of sleep,yet it was sealed to him.He walked the empty street.Hot breath of baking.Garbage in the gutters.A bicycle. The derelicttorches of the stars.

    12. I'm not a poetry expert. Quite the opposite, actually. Most often, I stick to my world of novels and don't branch out much but on a whim I chose this book (mostly because of it's cover, actually. I'm a horribly firm believer in covers). It was intensely enjoyable for me and, though I'm not convinced on his ability to form a complete poem, there were moments, beautiful, expansive, intimate moments that inspired me greatly. For this I would read it again and try to climb into it a bit more.

    13. Apparently I'm in the minority here, but I really, really liked this, especially his translations of Horace. Short Fuse and Rescued are remarkably good. I'd like to see him try Catullus. I'll admit that sometimes he gets a little too clever, and sure, he relies heavily on allusions, but those are not in and of themselves bad things. When they work, they really work, and I think many of these poems work very well indeed.

    14. Like the first day of a new school; full of words you know but inside jokes you don't understand. Your contribution is politely considered and then discarded. But it grows and you persevere, and soon you have fleeting glimpses of friendship and belonging. I don't get poetry, but I am determined to be its friend.

    15. Disappointing because it came across to me as poetry that was written as 'project pieces' or at the suggestion of someone else - as children or teenagers are 'made' to write poems on subjects others give them - rather than from the heart of the poet. Skillful and clever but just not something which I found myself connecting to in any way.

    16. I liked Mark Haddon's Curious Incident novel. But I read his poems before I read this. I enjoyed the novel more I must say but the poems are very well written nevertheless. And I did enjoy reading them, though some of the subject matter of the poems seem a bit obscure. Still, he's a very good poet and this is worth checking out if you're into poetry.

    17. A book of poetry with a definite twist to it. The poems all flow beautifully, but you really have to read carefully and think hard to determine the meaning of some of them. Some of them are very dark, and I like the others better.

    18. Meh. It was nothing spectacular. Maybe I'm reading it wrong? Maybe you are supposed to enjoy poetry in small bites, meant to be savoured slowly over time? I have enjoyed poetry in the past where the words elicit a deep, almost painful response. This collection didn't do it for me.

    19. It was a pretty good selection of poems. Not sure I really liked Haddon's poetry style, but it was pretty good.

    20. Published only because of his success with Curious Incident, not because of its own merits, which are few.

    21. Some of these are haunting and some are funny and some are just weird. I like his way of looking at the world.

    22. I couldn't follow the logic of the book's organization. And most of the poems fell flat for me. Haddon is definitely a better novelist!

    23. this book was ok. poetry was kind of silly and light nothing really that exciting. they remind me of blue glass. pretty to look at but kind of see through.

    24. I'm fond of 'This Poem is Certificate 18' and enjoyed 'Nuns' and 'Christmas Night, 1930'. Some real nice imagery in those, but quite a lot of this shit left me cold

    25. i think i like mark haddon the novelist more than mark haddon the poet, but maybe that's just me. the book is entertaining, though.

    26. Great author, but aside from a few gems in this collection, his poetry is ratherr lack of a better word: bland - and forgettable. Shame, I generally really like his work.
