Great poetry 'finds its way to the hearts of many, not just the minds of the few', and this delightful collection is the ideal way to browse, remember and enjoy some of poetry's greatest hits.

Following in the bestselling footsteps of I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, the first poetry anthology from Ana Sampson, Tyger Tyger, Burning Bright contains verses from more than eighty of the world's favourite poets, from the thirteenth century to the present day.

It includes such leading lyricists as Burns, Keats, Tennyson, T. S. Eliot, Philip Larkin and Seamus Heaney - taking in the work of W.H. Auden, Dylan Thomas, Wilfred Owen, and many others along the way.

Perfect to dip into on the reader's whim, the chapters cover childhood and youth, nature, love and romance, home and travel, elegies, and more - each poem set in context with a lively introduction and entertaining notes on the poets themselves.

This anthology is a lovely reminder of the nation's finest poems, and the perfect addition to any poetry lover's collection.
