Waterstones Says

The inimitable Gyles Brandreth revels in wordplay, rhythm and lyrical eloquence with this deftly curated anthology of poetry that runs the gamut from W.H. Auden to Rupi Kaur. A celebration of language and craft and a testament to the enduring power of the verse form, Dancing By the Light of the Moon is a truly inspired collection.

Following the recent success of the bestselling Have You Eaten Grandma? Gyles Brandreth is back with the ultimate collection of poetry.

Gyles celebrates the finest uses of our English language by handpicking the ultimate anthology of poetry, from the classics, Auden, Wilde, Shakespeare to our all-time favourites, Milligan, McGough and Armitage, to even our most modern works by Rupi Kaur. With so many wonderful poets to choose from this beautiful compendium will become your definitive poetry book to treasure for years to come.

He urges us to savour the perfect couplets, delicate words, and clever quips by learning these exquisite poems by heart. By appreciating, memorising and sharing these poems we can begin to increase literacy rates, improve our memories, all the while enriching our lives with the joy of language.

Gyles writes emphatically about the beauty, diversity and ingenuity of the language used in these poems, and the way in which they can transform our lives.
