It is a grand selection of poetry with something for every mind. My previous volume was getting dog-eared with pages missing - the answer was to get a replacement of the same book. Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes put together this book with old and much loved poems but many new ones as well from lesser known writers. Their selection may be hit and miss for some but will always entertain the thought buds of the many. ( i cant believe I wrote that).
