Author(s): Andrew Motion
This anthology brings together an extraordinary range of poems, exemplifying that, if we let it, poetry has a unique power to enrich our lives as it diversifies them. The poems are arranged in a series of ten concentric rings: Self, Home, Town, Work, Land, Love, Travel, War, Belief and Space.
