Favourite Poems 

From Chaucer to Carroll, Shakespeare to Shelley, enjoy the nation's favourite poets in this gorgeous anthology by the National Trust. From Renaissance writers such as Christopher Marlowe, Romantics like Lord Byron and Modernists such as T S Eliot, explore a variety of poets from all ages. Also included in this selection are poets who are connected to National Trust properties such as Vita Sackville-West who lived at Sissinghurst and Thomas Hardy, whose cottage is looked after by the National Trust.

The poems in this book are organised by themes to make it easy to find a poem that can console or amuse, or for special occasions like readings at christenings and weddings; 'Velvet Footsteps' celebrates our animal friends; 'The Glimmering Landscape' illustrates the beauty of our green isle; 'Along the Sand' explores smuggler's coves and the moods of the sea; 'The Noise of Battle' recalls classic war poems.
