Overview

... poetry is the blossom and the fragrancy of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language.' Samuel Taylor Coleridge

This glorious celebration of classic poetry features verse from around the English-speaking world. Carefully selected and divided into themed sections, the poems encompass the wealth of human experience - love, death, youth, old age, nature, travel and humour are all included in works that range from the 1500s onwards.

A comprehensive range of time-honoured poetry from the British Isles, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the collection embraces the famous and not so famous, from Blake and Wordsworth to Adeler and Wyatt, and includes over 170 other poets.

From Coleridge's fantastical Xanadu or the battlefields of John McCrae, to the ominous croaking of Poe's raven, this is a wonderful collection of poems containing the great and the good, the funny and the tragic, and everything in between.
