Emeritus Professor at the University of Oxford, John Carey has compiled a charming and accessible introduction to poetry, selecting the finest poems by 100 of the greatest poets from across all time. Ranging from Homer and Sappho to Donne and Milton, Plath and Angelou, there are all-time favourites together with little-known gems, all accompanied by Carey’s expert commentary. Particular attention is given to the works of female poets, like Christina Rossetti and Charlotte Mew. This is a personal guide to the poetry that shines brightest through the ages.
