To celebrate the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Day on Thursday 3 October, we round-up the finest verse of 2019.
Signed & Exclusive Poetry Books
Wonderfully democratic and inclusive, this anthology reflects the favourite poems of Great Britain, as chosen by everyone from world-famous astronauts to primary school teachers. Published to coincide with National Poetry Day, this collection explores the theme of truth through a diverse and always unpredictable range of verse, resulting in an essential store of poems to combat the increasing prevalence of concepts such as post-truth and fake news. With a beautiful introduction from Welsh songbird Cerys Matthews, Tell Me the Truth About Life is a deftly curated and timely collection.
