IRREVERENT POEMS FOR PRETENTIOUS PEOPLE is an eclectic collection of poems that range from sardonically humorous to genuinely moving. The collection plays fast and loose with both language and form as it explores, among other things, linguistics, history, relationships and the absurd. Henrik Hoeg's first published collection, it was awarded a publication prize in the competition for the International Proverse Prize 2015.
Irreverent Poems for Pretentious People will make you laugh, reflect, and look up Greek philosophers on wikipedia. I highly recommend it to anybody.
One might say to the author, in his own words, "Come, take your words back, I’ve exhausted them.” But not for long. Irreverent Poems for Pretentious People, is well worth a read, and any number of rereads.
— Holger Anderson, poet, Copenhagen
“Henrik Hoeg’s poems are fun to read because you can tell that they were fun to write....” — Jadis Blurton, Hong Kong
