Moniza Alvi (Lahore, 1954) is een Britse dichteres.
Geboren uit Brits-Pakistaanse ouders, verhuisde zij reeds als baby naar Engeland, waar ze opgroeide in Hatfield (Hertfordshire). Zij studeerde Engels aan de Universiteit van York en werkte daarna lange tijd als lerares in Londen.



Rosemary Tonks - I didn't like her poems. Maybe I simply didn't get them, but I had this feeling, that she was a spoiled, bored woman, sitting in a cafe and whining about her priviledged, perfect life. I really wanted to shake her and tell her to find something to do and stop complaining!

Ruth Padel - not for me. I didn't get these poems at all, they left me quite cold. I did enjoy the idea of "Darwin", but the poems - not so much.

Jo Shapcott - I quite liked these poems, although I found them very disturbing and much too sensual and wet for my taste. It was a bit like watching frogs having sex in a tank, that's how they made me feel. I think the author said too much, went too deep, too personal for me.

Moniza Alvi - I enjoyed one ot two poems, but generally they were not for me. She kept telling about differences, not the similarities between countries and cultures and I didn't like it. Still, there were some very beautiful poems, my favourite one was "The Bees".

Gwyneth Lewis - wonderful, I loved her poems - so funny and moving, so charming and clever, I truly adored them all. Five stars.

Jackie Kay - I loved the poems, they seemed really raw and honest, a bit too brutal for my taste, but deeply moving and wonderful.

Lavinia Greenlaw - I found these poems very strange and I don't think I understood them at all. I can't even say whether I liked them or not, they were so difficult to get for me.

Alice Oswald - I simply love this author, these poems were so strong and fascinating. I have never read anything like "Memorial" before, it was an unforgettable experience for me. I fell in love with this poem. Five stars.

Beautiful poetry from Moniza Alvi.
Some poems were very intense and deep. The words absolutely portrayed the world of Fairoz a teenager, her love and her heartbreak along with her family conditions.

This is a thought-provoking, rather dark collection of poems. My favorites were "Mermaid" and "The Trees Outside My Window."
