The sadness of seeing a loved one depart on a long voyage, the wonder of seeing new lands and meeting new people the web of emotions reflected in this fascinating anthology is complex and varied. Alun Lewis describes the poignancy of lovers parting forever in Goodbye while Tennyson captures an insatiable wanderlust in Ulysses. Laurie Lee celebrates England and homecoming in Home from Abroad whereas in Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night Dylan Thomas ponders the final and ultimate journey that we make: life into death. Packed with a rich variety of wonderful poems, The Nations Favourite Poems of Journeys is sure to become a greatly treasured companion as you travel through life. The foreword is to be written by Benedict Allen.
