Description

More than 100 poems about Britain's nature in a beautifully illustrated book edited by our own Poetry Pharmacist Deborah Alma.

Seven chapters touch on different aspects of the British countryside, including seasons, birds and wildlife, woods, water, moors and mountains. This carefully chosen collection will inspire you to explore nature through a poet’s eye – the perfect antidote to ‘times when the world is too much with us’, as Wordsworth so beautifully put it.

There are celebrated poems by the greats – Keats, Yeats, Tennyson, Robert Browning, Christina Rossetti, Philip Larkin, Sylvia Plath, John Masefield, Robert Burns, Dylan Thomas – as well as others by contemporary poets whose work you will want to seek out and explore further, including Carol Anne Duffy, Simon Armitage and Jean Sprackland. Where poems have links to National Trust sites, footnotes are included to explain the connections.
