We British Summary ´ 108 characters á eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Andrew Marr Ttish farmers West Country priests a Warwickshire actor and many bards and balladeers from across the British Isles each adding their own distinct voice to the chorus From Caedmon to Zephaniah the poets we meet will paint a powerful portrait of what it means to be British. Excellent book I ve been reading it every daynight to my toddler she s too young to understand so I can read adult booksAn excellent idea Really original I love that Andrew Marr unashamedly gives his opinion So many don t and are afraid to knock any of the literary giants It s very clear when it is his opinion and it gives me a perspective to bounce off to agree or disagree withVery well researched and a great selection which doesn t just pander to popular poems and poets but helps to drive the historical narrative He often also chooses lesser known poems but which reveal about the author and time than othersOverall I d say full marksThe only thing I should point out being a Somerset lad is Frost At Midnight was written at his cottage in Nether Stowey Somerset not Devon I ve been there a couple of times Many of his best known poems were penned there

This book isn t uite a history of British ie English Scottish Welsh and Irish poetry from Caedmon to the present day it s a sort of annotated anthology with poems and excerpts from poems giving a representative sample of each period As such it s an excellent introduction for the person who enjoys poetry but isn t well informed about the history of the craft in the British IslesFor me there were lots of old favourites here but also many with whom I was unfamiliar old and new Like all poetry fans reading the book I was ticked off at the omission of some of my favourites John Masefield RS Thomas but a book of 640 pages attempting to introduce the reader to 1350 years of British poetry is bound to offend in that way Overall I thought the book was brilliant And I d give this one word of reading advice read it aloud and with a spouse or partner or friend if you can My wife and I read it in coffee shops and we thoroughly enjoyed this treat for the ears as well as the eyes Five stars and well deserved
