Synopsis

All of poetry's greatest hits—from the classics of Wordsworth and Pope to modern-day poets W. H. Auden and Ted Hughes. Complete with an index of famous lines. Do you remember the famous opening lines, "Tyger tyger, burning bright"? Or, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" But would you be able to name the poems or the poets? The English language is jam-packed with wonderful verses that we've all heard at some point, but probably forgotten. I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud will remind you of all those long-forgotten poems that you were taught at school, together with mini-biographies and introductions. This title includes: "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by Coleridge; "If" by Rudyard Kipling; "Dulce et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen; "Song of Myself" by Walt Whitman; "Digging" by Seamus Heaney; and "Not Waving But Drowning" by Stevie Smith. Complete with an index of famous lines as well as authors, any poetry enthusiast will love the collection of best-loved poems alongside the lively commentary. I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud is a perfect addition to any poetry lover's collection.
