Alison Brackenbury’s Spring 2014 review of later work from Dannie Abse, Fergus Allen and Elspeth Smith is now available to read in full on the Poetry Daily website. “Hungry Generation” takes in Abse’s humour, “wicked as the parrot’s cackle”, in Speak, Old Parrot, the “unsparing intelligence” in Fergus Allen’s huge New and Selected Poems, and “the wonderfully titled Dangerous Cakes”, 92-year-old Elspeth Smith’s debut collection.
