One of Britain's most widely read and admired poets who died in 2014 has left behind a beautiful publication for us to dip into time and again, illustrated with full page colour 1930s imagery, as if straight from a colour magazine. His very personal collection includes famous poems to those hardly known and a few translations besides. Includes the Song of Solomon from the Bible, To Lesbia by Catullus, The River Merchant's Wife: A Letter by Li Po, poems from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, In Praise of Marriage by Christine de Pisan, and the work of Sir Philip Sydney, Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, John Donne, Anne Bradstreet's 'To My Dear and Loving Husband' and 'Before the Birth of One of her Children', Andrew Marvell 'To His Coy Mistress' and Aphra Behn on 'Loving Two Equally'. The collection continues with Burns, Byron, Clare, Keats, the Brownings, the Brontës, the Rossettis, D. H. Lawrence, Lorca, Robert Graves, W. H. Auden, Vernon Scannell to Carol Ann Duffy and Andrew Motion and more. 192 beautifully decorated and presented pages with short biographies of each contributor.
