Reader Reviews for "First Person Plural: poems"

Reviewed by Roger Taber 3/10/2004
I am delighted by feedback on the book. I deliberately combine gay-interest and other poems in an attempt to show that gay poetry is as good as any other and not a separate genre-within-a-genre. At poetry readings - invariably to mixed gay/straight audiences - I am always pleased my work is well recieved as that of a poet, not (just) a 'gay poet'. - Roger N. Taber

A Customer Review on amazon.co.uk:

Reviewer: Liam Brookes from Manchester, U.K.
Having also read Love And Human Remains by this poet, I looked forward to a new volume of poetry and have to say I am not disappointed. It is easy to relate to Taber's poems. He tackles contemporary issues and thoughts that concern us all. His gay poems are refreshingly unselfconscious and some, in my view, should rate among the best contemporary love poetry. The poems in this volume come across as both personal and caring; they lead the reader into both unknown and familiar territories, where heart and mind can either relax and feel at home or explore and discover new dimensions of poetry, philosophy and everyday concerns. His poems are varied as he writes in different voices, each one a pleasure to "hear". I agree with a blurb on the back cover: "Simply, without being simplistic, his poems invite us to share a growing concern for Green and social issues, to all of which he brings a spiritual dimension". The lay-out of the book, in five sections, also makes it easier, more interesting and often exciting to read. I sincerely hope we can look forward to another volume of poems by Roger Taber and will continue to enjoy reading his latest input on the Internet. We should be hearing much more of this man - who also appears to be the only contemporary poet combining gay and other poetry under one cover...a literary innovation I commend to other readers.
