The Same Inside

Publisher: Macmillan

Review

The Same Inside is a thought-provoking and heart-warming collection of poems from three renowned British poets, Liz Brownlee, Matt Goodfellow and Roger Stevens.

Each poem is short, snappy and accessible, exploring subjects like empathy, respect and bullying. There’s something here for everyone to relate to, or to see their own feelings or experiences reflected within the words. Both gentle and searing, many of the poems touch on tough subjects about growing up and the world around us, but with great sensitivity. There is much here to think about and discuss, or readers can simply to enjoy the poets’ play with words, from Roger Stevens’ circular Night Puzzle to Liz Brownlee’s Beware the Bytes.

A great book to introduce poetry to those who aren’t too sure about it, or a great addition for anyone who already loves poetry.
