9780007160280: Essential Poems for the Way We Live Now

Beautifully repackaged volume of Daisy Goodwin's best-selling poetry anthologies which celebrates all things British. Daisy Goodwin's anthology of poetry is a witty reflection of what it means to be British today -- from bad public transport, teeth and weather to our glorious countryside, sense of humour and stiff upper lip. Introduced in her inimitable tongue-in-cheek style, each section ('Leaves on the Line', 'The Queue') brings together a surprising selection of old and new poems, including the top three entries shortlisted for the BBC's Poem for Britain competition. These essential poems, featuring work from Blake to Betjeman and Kipling to Jackie Kay, are for the way we live now.
