When Byron described poetry as ‘the feeling of a former world and future’, he perfectly summed up the power of great poems to speak to us across the ages. Introduced by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, this anthology is a celebration of poetry and the passion it inspires. It gathers together more than 300 of our favourite poems, spanning over 400 years from the Tudor court verse of John Skelton and Thomas Wyatt to Yeats's ‘Politics’, first published in 1938.
