The fact that 'Whoroscope' has pride of place as the first poem in this collection pretty much says it all about Beckett's poetry: it is astonishingly misogynistic, and full of utterly underwhelming smug puns and references. Oh, look! He combined the words 'prostitute' and 'prosciutto', such dizzying intelligence! (The line actually reads, 'Two ovaries lashed with prostiscuitto', which is awful on many levels and profound on absolutely none.)

Whilst in his novels and plays there has always been something, however slight, that I have respected, I can honestly say I found nothing in Beckett's poetry to admire. As he writes in 'Tailpiece', these poems 'nothingness/ in words enclose' - they amount to nothing other than pretentiousness and misogyny, the French poems included.
