Description

From celebrating the birth of a baby through memories of childhood recalled in later life, the joy of friendship and the delight of finding love there are many moments of happiness to be cherished in our lives. Arranged thematically around significant stages in our lives, poets of every age find cause for celebration in a selection of 100 popular poems: Sylvia Plath marvels at her child in 'You're'. Dylan Thomas on his thirtieth birthday finds his heart singing with the joy he felt as a young boy, Shakespeare, John Donne and many others celebrate the power of love, while Walt Whitman and Anne Finch find pleasure in their solitude. Including much-loved classics and humourous, poignant and evocative verse, this delightfully upbeat collection is sure to reinvoke the pleasure of all those smaller moments that bring us joy and help celebrate the major stages in our lives.show more
