David Knight's The Army Does Not Go Away is full of witty, well turned poems, many of them in traditional forms. Knight recalls Auden in the way he takes the old forms and subverts them to his purposes, which, in the "public" Nigerian poems of this book, are political as well as poetic. His rhymes are well chosen, and not only tie up a couplet but underline a well made point. (D. Barbour) In this book the poet "is an observer, sadly aware of protests, murder and waste" (W.H. New) much lighter books such as this shipped at a lower price. pgs
