Customer Review

on 21 April 2012
This is by far the best poetry book in my collection. It is a wonderful mix of wisdom, experience, humour, life. Some poets I know, some are new to me, all are profoundly memorable, and stay with me at many levels. I am reading from start to finish. I am only half way through, but already I want to start again - and learn them all by heart.

It is a book that I heard mentioned on Desert Island Discs recently - can't remember who it was who chose it, but was requested as an alternative to the Bible, and that is as good a reason to buy it, whether you are religious or not. This is essence of modern humanity, distilled into beautiful words.
