Self-depricating, bitingly satirical, and surprisingly thought-provoking, Dorothy Parker’s first collection of poetry comments on love and the relations between men and women with quick wit and lyrical verse.
First published as a collection in 1926, the poetry featured in Enough Rope reflects the famous wit that Dorothy Parker is so widely loved for. A founding member of the Algonquin Round Table writers’ group, Parker often presents a cynical analysis of love, which entertains as much as her verse captivates.
This volume features many of Parker’s best-known poetry, including:
- – ‘The Small Hours’
- – ‘The False Friends’
- – ‘The Trifler’
- – ‘A Very Short Song’
- – ‘A Well-Worn Story’
- – ‘Convalescent’
- – ‘The Dark Girl’s Rhyme’
Specialist poetry imprint Ragged Hand has proudly republished Enough Rope in this beautiful new volume and will make the perfect addition to the bookshelves of Dorothy Parker fans and those interested in Jazz Age poetry.
