Book Description

5 Jan 2012
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, The Picador Book of Funeral Poems will help you towards it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad, but really helpful 24 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's obviously a sad time in your life if you are planning a funeral but it's even sadder if you cannot get the funeral you want to give your loved one. Reading this collection helped me to get it right when I was near to giving up. A great help at a stressful time.
