Review:

His humour is remarkably versatile, for it can be used to serve both his deepest love and his most remorseless hatred (Observer)

His poems spring from what he really feels about real life, and as a result he brings back to poetry a sense of dramatic urgency it had all but lost (Philip Larkin)

Betjeman is perhaps as completely original a writer as has ever existed (Times Literary Supplement)

'This "best of", which shows just why Betjeman came to be regarded with more affection than any other poet of the 20th century, lives up to the claim with a selection of his greatest poetry and prose' (Western Daily Press)

'Who could ever tire of the amusing and poignant pictures he painted in verses...' (Oxford Times)

Book Description:

A delightful anthology of Betjeman's greatest poetry and prose
