      Basically it’s one of those q’s that won’t be asked, but it’s an attempt to gain a better insight into Mahon, from a negative perspective. i just don’t like his poetry. I don’t feel a contempt for his work, and want to have good reasons to support why.

      don’t like Mahon’s poetry because of:

      his variation of tone, rhyme, rhythm from poem to poem
      his choice of themes for his poetry
      his use of natural imagery
      his use of personification, metaphor and logic – complicates his poetry
