Billy Collins is becoming a favorite of mine. Aimless Love is a collection of old poems—some I recognized, some I didn’t—along with a small collection of new ones. It’s a much longer book than his older collections, which means you have more poems to work with.
There’s really not much to say here. I liked his poems just as much this time as last. If you like his poetry, you’ll like this one. If you don’t, you won’t. His style is fresh, humorous, and has very little “stuffy British poetry snob” about it. I liked it. ♦
