Description

A magnificent collection of 366 poems, one to share for every night of the year. The poems – together with introductory paragraphs – have a link to the date on which they appear. Shakespeare celebrates midsummer night, Maya Angelou International Women’s Day and Lewis Carroll April Fool’s day. It contains a full spectrum of poetry from familiar favourites to brand-new voices. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, W. B. Yeats, A. A. Milne and Christina Rossetti sit alongside Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy, Kate Tempest and Benjamin Zephaniah.
