Item description for Courtesy Orchis: The Collection by Courtesy Orchis...

Courtesy Orchis explores the hidden recesses of the mind in provocative and sometimes disturbing poetry. She inspires and intrigues with her innovative style, and seems to have the confidence to confront painful issues in an aesthetic form which portrays depths of feeling. Orchis' acute introspection and linguistic versatility give an interpretive freedom to the reader, and so from the intimate and personal is created a work of universal appeal: Minerva Press She is a genius. The Poverty Poet is the top 'babe' in 'British' poetry at the moment. Courtesy breaks taboos and dangerously identifies herself with nature as it is raped and enslaved. The honesty in these poems in direct: Andrew Jordan (Editor/Poet) Something very personal is going on here. Slowly it dawns on me, guarded at first, I am allowed to peer in, as if wiping a steamed up mirror. Part of Courtesy's life has been carefully placed in this book and sealed. Not for complete abandonment, just for a rest. Control is the key here. A cross examination of life. What makes it so private is the passing mention of everyday names, written with someone in mind. The poems aren't necessarily linked in an obvious theme, except for maybe an intolerance of 'outside opinion' against our own. She expresses what her surrounders might think she thinks, a remembrance of how she was and will be now. Is this true for everybody or just the chosen few? And then the tide turns. Instead of being drawn in, I feel the urge to back away. I want to take a distant critical approach. Perhaps I'm scared. Courtesy doesn't hint at her beliefs but smacks you right in the face with them. However a softer side is bred, our cynical Poet has been in love. (I breathed a sigh of relief): Mary Hooton (Editor/Poet)
