Description

'London, thou art the flower of cities all!' William Dunbar (1459-1513) Steeped in history, culture and traditions, London remains one of the largest and most populous cities on the planet. Small wonder then, that some of history's greatest poets have been inspired by it. This illustrated collection of classic London verse contains poetry by writers such as Thomas Hardy, D.H.Lawrence and William Wordsworth, from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The poems praise the pageantry and history of the capital, as well as the natural beauty of its gardens, suburbs and mighty river. Yet some also express the melancholy, loneliness and alienation sometimes felt by the city's inhabitants. If you live in London or are just a visitor, you will find many poems in this book for inspiration and reflection.show more
