Product description

Synopsis

The longest poem in this collection is 13 lines and the shortest has no lines at all. Arranged as a kind of countdown, the anthology illustrates how the short poem can tell a story, capture an instance, present a complex argument and be packed with as much passion, wisdom and music as we might desire from a piece of writing.
