Blue Movie review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ugh it as though it's one long exhalation of the lived experience This is what is revealed here on paper; the thrill of higher than highs and the destitute howl of the lows as friend husband lover parent user son and magically gifted writer Here is generosity Here is Love Melissa Lee Houghton It doesn’t take long to realise that the poems in Bobby Parker’s Blue Movie routinely visit places most poems wouldn’t dare to look; the cumulative effect of the book is a bit like watching someone unpeel strips of carpet from the floors of a room you know well to discover masses of teeming unexpected life beneath here is horror hilarity inanity longing deprivation love cruelty loss Reading Parker’s poems is like studying the undersides of those writhing ragged strips While this work is avidly and darkly concerned with personal histories there is no comfort none of the easy nostalgia that remains the touch.

Blue Movie review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Stone of so much UK poetry here the past is properly and disturbingly present like a corpse in the house I have rarely encountered work that risks ‘too much’ and ‘not enough’ with such freuency recklessness and exuberance – perhaps it is through the relation of these extremes that the real contemporary richness of Parker’s work trades it is here it places its special wager The most surprising thing about these poems considering their bleakness is the lasting sense of excitement and hope defeated many times over these are poems still besotted with language and life and they present a fresh challenge and genuine cause for alarm to the cosy refinements and polite distinctions of the vast majority of contemporary British poetry They rub the shit of real life into literature’s carpet They dare you to think they’re kidding They are never the first to blink or to turn out the light Sam Riviere.
