I couldn't believe my luck when I discovered a copy of this anthology in the library I stumbled across the poetry section and thought I'd correct the fact that I haven't read much modern poetry Unfortunately the selection was limited too many Penguin Classics by far and I was about to give up when I saw this book Just for the record although it contains some poetry I would not describe this anthology as a poetry collection Common People largely consists of essays memoirs and musings based on real life experiences Perhaps that's why a book which I've heard such a buzz about online and so recently was available at the library; no one thought to look under poetry Oddly enough this is one instance where the categorising of 'poetry' under 'non fiction' in my hometown's central library would be accurateAs someone who is freuently troubled by thoughts of her own class position I was extremely excited to read this book Common People is dedicated to everyone who has yearned to see their life on the page who has hoped one day to read about working class lives told by working class people who lived them I for one found it to live up to this dedication There were so many experiences in this book which I too felt I have lived through so many characters I relate to and so many private thoughts which I have often felt alone in thinking voiced by others This is the power of Common PeopleAnd of course I have to look no further than the wonderful cover of this anthology to discover a list of working class writers whose voices I want to hear of
