    A vintage resident of my parents bookcase We love to read poetry aloud to each other and we know where all the good ones are in this book Popular definitely good, but there is certainly some overlap and some of our own favourites can be found among the others I was going to say Auden, but he s neither the only nor the worst author of less than deserving popular works We all like the one about wearing purple when we get old I m already old with that woman who doesn t give a damn wha A vintage resident of my parents bookcase We love to read poetry aloud to each other and we know where all the good ones ...

    For the first time ever, the book of the month for my local book group was a book of poetry There is a poetry group in the village too, but this book was chosen for the book group, not the poetry group There was some dissension in the ranks on this basis I belong to both groups, and thought this made a nice change.The Nation s Favourite Poems starts with a forward by Griff Rhys Jones Griff Rhys Jones was born in Cardiff, Wales on 16 November, 1953 He was educated at Brentwood School, a a fa For the first time ever, the book of the month for my local book group was a book of poetry There is a poetry group in the village too, but this book was chosen for the book group, not the poetry group There was some dis...

    3 stars There were some good poems in this anthology Snake and The Highwayman were two of my favourites There were others that I wasn t particularly fond of, like Toilet and Chocolate Cake I m a person that appreciates rhythm and refined imagery when it comes to poetry and unless it s done spectacularly, I don t like free verse Having words scattered all over the page with no rhyme or reason makes me uncomfortable Overall, not a selection of poetry I would have chosen myself but th 3 stars There were some good poems in this anthology Snake and The Highwayman were two of my favourites There were others that I wasn t particularly fond of, like Toilet and Chocolate Cake I m a person that appreciates rhythm and refined imagery when it com...

    The public are amazing Just when you think you re going to get either a 50 50 split between Shakespeare and rude limericks, you end up delving into a mad world of odd, classic poems many of which I d never heard of Which is a bit shaming for an English graduate.Hey ho On the upside, my favourite new finds were Remember, The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes, To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell, Sea Fever by John Masefield, Warning ...
