Product Description

Book Description

In our deepest grief we still turn instinctively to poetry for solace. These poems, drawn from many different ages and cultures, remind us that the experience of parting is a timelessly human one: however alone the loss of a loved one leaves us, our mourning is also something that deeply unites us; these poems of parting and passing, of sorrow and healing, will find a deep echo within those who find themselves dealing with grief or bereavement. Whatever our loss, it is assuaged in finding a voice - and whether that voice is one of private remembrance or public memorial, All the Poems You Need to Say Goodbye will help you towards it.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Simon Smith on 19 Oct 2006
As a funeral adviser and co-author of We Need To Talk About The Funeral, a practical guide to arranging funerals, I find this a useful anthology. Chosen by poet Don Paterson, it includes some beautiful, ancient Japanese poems and a good number of international poems. It would benefit from the inclusion of some more modern pieces, but it gives a good alterative to the normal fare so often heard.
