We raise a glass with friends and we drink in solitude to remember and to forget. Drink gives us the courage to love and comfort when we lose. All this and more is captured in this rich poetry anthology. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an introduction by Jancis Robinson. Many of the most famous poets have weaved the delights and temptations of drink into their verse. In Happy Hour: Poems to Raise a Glass to, there are chapters on whisky and beer, celebrations, why we drink and where we go to do it. Robert Burns is here of course alongside Yeats, Keats, Emily Dickinson, Hilaire Belloc, Sara Teasdale, Edward Lear, G. K. Chesterton and many more.

About Various

Voted the world's most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic. She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine, co-author with Hugh Johnson of The World Atlas of Wine and co-author of Wine Grapes, each of these books recognised as a standard reference worldwide. Her most recent book, The 24-Hour Wine Expert, is a slim paperback guide to the practical essentials of wine.
