When will my order arrive?

A diverse collection of poetry which celebrates both England and all that it means to be English - from the rolling hills, to those lost in battle over the centuries, to London's bustling streets and a nation obsessed with the weather. Ode to England encompasses a breadth of poetry from our most renowned writers - such as William Wordsworth, D. H. Lawrence and William Blake - alongside verses from less prestigious names which equally capture many inspiring visions of our 'sceptered isle'. The poems are presented alongside stunning illustrations which pay further tribute to the beauty of this green and pleasant land. The perfect gift for any Englishman or Anglophile, this wonderful collection captures all the beauty and eccentricities of England and Englishness.
