A witty and original collection of poems by the author of Fast Forward, The Automatic Oracle illustrates Peter Porter’s uncanny talent for difficult rhyming stanzas and his irreverence, on occasion, in deciding not to rhyme at all. In poems such as “Spiderwise” and “The Pantoum of the Opera” his writing process seems easy and he handles difficult rhythms, such as the triolet, with characteristic aplomb.
