Product Description:

This beautiful new edition of Poems on the Underground is published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Underground in 2013. Here 230 poems old and new, romantic, comic and sublime explore such diverse topics as love, London, exile, families, dreams, war, music and the seasons, and feature poets from Sappho to Carol Ann Duffy and Wendy Cope, including Chaucer and Shakespeare, Milton, Blake and Shelley, Whitman and Dickinson, Yeats and Auden, Seamus Heaney and Derek Walcott and a host of younger poets. It includes a new foreword and over two dozen poems not included in previous anthologies.

Review:

The most democratic artistic intervention of my lifetime (Maev Kennedy Guardian)

London's most original contribution to urban civilisation (Simon Jenkins Evening Standard)

Beautifully presented ... This makes it an ideal book to dip into. Few people would see this book lying around the house and not be tempted to quickly browse through and find a morsel of verse that meant something to them at that moment. Everyone will find their own favourites in the book ( A Common Reader)
