This collection took me back to my school days where I loved English Literature & Speech & Drama which introduced me to Poetry. I think anyone who has not tried reading Poetry before will find this an excellent introduction as there are some well known ones amongst them which are easily recognised but there are far more to entertain both types of readers, just give it a try, I keep mine on the Kindle so I can easily dip in & out of the collection.

Bought this poetry hardback for my mum for a birthday gift and it went down an absolute storm! Didn't know which poetry book to buy, and thought this best as it has many favorites you may know as well as being read out on radio 4. Very fast delivery and great quality with a built in page ribbon. 10/10

It is a large book andI have not had the chance yet to read it right through as yet but going through skipping through shows that it will be a book I will treasure

An excellent anthology with all the usual suspects included and more besides! I was surprised that no poem by Alexander Pope appears-still perhaps he is out of fashion nowadays.
