London by Barnaby Rogerson


London by Barnaby Rogerson

This is the first book in a new series of pocket-sized poetry books for travelers and poetry lovers who seek inspiration while on a bus, subway train, or taxi, or while waiting for a museum to open. Here is the poetry of London, from the up-beat rap-poetry of Benjamin Zephaniah to Wordsworth's dawn sigh. From the catchpenny verses of Oranges and Lemons and London Bridge is Falling Down, to the ecstatic visions of Keats, Milton, and Blake. From the first lines of Anglo-Saxon verse to lines retrieved from a bar last year. It's a collection full of irony, delight, and personal grief. Some other poets included are Shakespeare. T.S. Eliot, Alan Jenkins, John Betjeman, Bacon, Wilde, and Blake.
