Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Parker's verse is about as different from Mayer's as you can get. Though famous for her stories, reviews, and bon mots, Parker was quite serious about her poetry, all of which is conveniently collected here. True to her life, most of these are very bitter, unhappy rhymes. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    True View

    Every poem I've read of Dorothy Parker holds the truth for us to witness. Death, love, and laughter is what she incorporates in her work. Great verse to example this world of hurt and heart.

    'To hell my Love with you' If you don't like Dorothy Parker!

    Parker is a truely funny and sacastic poet. Every poem I have read rings true. She manages to use profane langage and turn it into art. I do not think men will like her work but there is not a woman alive who would not appreciate 'Indian Summer'

    one of the greatest wits ever

    dorothy parker was one of the sharpest wits we've ever seen, and this collection of poems shows her talents at their best. you do get a little tired of her cynicism after a while, but her first two classics, Enough Rope & Sunset Gun both make it worthwhile to read. she is one of the best poets we've had.
