Purchase Unreliable Judgements directly from John Cooper
“Unreliable Judgements”, a new collection of poetry from a distinct Northern voice
is published by Little Ginnel Press (price £9.50)
“Readers seeking a precipitous intellectual challenge may not be out of breath at the end of this book………” says John in the introduction to “ Unreliable Judgements “ . That is not to say the verse lacks metaphorical dimensions or requires no cerebral activity by the reader.
Here is a range of poems incorporating many emotions, shock ,pathos, yearning, glee,nostalgia and doing so without the reader needing comprehensive familiarity with poetic form. The voice is direct - devoid of flamboyance and sentimentality - as you would expect from a dyed-in-the-wool West Riding lad who, among other achievements, boasts a City and Guilds Certificate in Shoddy and Mungo Manufacture!
He is yet to produce (he says) a competent Yorkshire dialect poem although he is proficient in speaking West Riding dialect.
John Cooper’s singular collection of poetry (ISBN 978-0-9565320-0-8) is available at Public Lending Libraries, the Leeds Library, and from book retailers, or from John’s website www.poetissimus.com or
