Review:

"It's a generous, likable, diligent and smart piece of work" (Andrew Motion Guardian)

"Ruth Padel is Virgil in the 'Inferno' of poetry. She guides the reader gently and deftly on the journey... This is much more than a book about poetry, this is a handbook for living!" (Fiona Shaw)

"Brilliant... Padel draws on a huge range of references to make a powerful case for poetry as a living art form" ( Independent)

"As a writer you would probably choose Ruth Padel as your ideal reader. Her eye misses very little of the nudging and winking that goes on in a poem, and she seems able to tune into the silent music of text on the page...she finds more than most to engage with and enjoy" (Simon Armitage)

"An enlivening, illuminating book, lucid, accessible and probing" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A follow up to the successful 52 Ways of Looking at a Poem, this new anthology gives you sixty wise and wonderful poems about life and suggests ways of reading them
