It can be really hard to review poetry because it is so subjective but what's great about an anthology like this is that even if one poem isn't to your taste you can almost guarantee to find gems that you'll love and discover writers you'd like to see more of. I really liked the way Ana Sampson has also included a little mini biography for each poet at the back of the book so you can find out a little more about each woman's background and other works they may have published.
This has been a great book to dip in and out of and you can choose to read by theme or just open a page at random to see what you'l discover. I've really enjoyed reading this slowly, just reading a handful of poems a day to really savour it and I'm sure I'll end up coming back to it again in the future.
Since then I've been reading a poem each night before bed and I am simply loving my new routine.
Ana has curated such a wonderful selection of poems that I am having to force myself to set the book down, to continue to read just one poem per night. Obviously, I could read more but I want to savour this book for as long as possible!
Thank you panmacmillan for this wonderful free book.
This is a wonderful gem of a book. With brilliant choices of poetry, it's inspiring and touching, and will inspire everyone who reads it to be braver. The choice of writers is inspired and diverse, and there are so many poems that aren't often chosen for anthologies, making it even more interesting. A gorgeous book.
