"The Oxford Treasury of Classic Poems" received terrific reviews when it was first published in 1996. Featuring a wealth of well-known and well-loved poems, it has established itself as a key collection of 'serious' poetry for children. Now re-issued with a beautiful new cover, it is the perfect gift for a new generation of readers. It is selected and arranged with great care, to demonstrate the full range and breadth of classic poems that every child should know. It features poems from W.B. Yeats and John Milton, to Charles Causley, Christina Rossetti and Alfred Lord Tennyson. It includes many much-loved favourites, like "The Owl and the Pussycat", "Ozymandias", "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" and "The Listeners". It is illustrated with great delicacy and charm.
