The Good Book Guide Review

From BBC Radio 4’s popular Poetry Please, affably hosted by Roger McGough, comes a collection devoted to love. Here Shakespeare’s sonnets sit alongside Philip Larkin’s poignant ‘Wedding Wind’, Carol Ann Duffy’s ‘Valen-tine’ giving an onion not a rose as a gift, and Wendy Cope’s wry ‘Rondeau Redoublé’. A delightful collection to dip into.
