All The Poems You Need To Say Goodbye

4.0 out of 5 stars A good anthology with some unusual poems, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent anthology, 19 Oct 2006
As a funeral adviser and author of We Need To Talk About The Funeral, I find this an excellent anthology of contemporary and more traditional poems to choose from for funerals. It is split into useful sections and spans Rumi to Neruda to the wonderful Mary Oliver.
