Poetry for the Bridget Jones generation -- an antidote to the stresses of modern life. Prozac has side effects, drink gives you hangovers, therapy's too expensive; for a quick and effective relief for all your emotional ailments try a poem -- for however bad it is some poet will have been there too. This is the first poetry anthology designed for the self-help generation. Look up your problem in the emotional index which has entries ranging from 'Bad Hair Days' to 'Is this Relationship Going Anywhere?', 'First Wrinkle' to 'Bereavement'. 'Career Crisis' to 'Redundancy' and a whole section of 'Instant Moral Fibre'. The prescribed poems include classics by Emily Dickinson and Lord Byron and previously unpublished works by contemporary poets like Wendy Cope. The book has a cure or at least a consolation for every modern misery, and no side effects.
