Customer Review

on 15 April 2013
I didn't see the TV programme. But I love this book. I like anthologies generally - it's a good way to get to know new poems or new poets without having to buy a whole book. This way an anthology can guide your book-buying choices. But most anthologies are either "new voices", which can be hit or miss, or based around a well-worn theme such as Love Poems. But the theme of this book is slightly different, based, as it is upon a journey around The British Isles. There's a tremendous variety of poems ranging from long ago (an anonymous poem about London Bridge from 1726) to contemporary poets like Simon Armitage and Tony Harrison, written in many different styles and moods. Short poems. Long poems. And all of the poems very good. All in all an excellent collection.
