Since becoming Poet Laureate in 1999, Andrew Motion has been tireless in his efforts to raise the profile of poetry. In this wonderful anthology, he has brought together an extraordinary range of poems, exemplifying his belief 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. Each section is distinct but seeks out resemblances and echoes elsewhere, creating the impression of an endlessly expanding universe. From Wallace Stevens to Stevie Smith, Joseph Brodsky to Jo Shapcott, Bob Dylan to Dylan Thomas, Ben Jonson to Benjamin Zephaniah, Here to Eternity provides a perfect introduction for new readers and offers surprising connections and revelations to those who are already well-versed.
A beautifully repackage of this wonderfully accessible selection chosen by the Poet Laureate Includes poems by Wallace Stevens, Stevie Smith, Jo Shapcott, Bob Dylan, Dylan Thomas, Ben Jonson and Benjamin Zephaniah, to name but a few Arranged in ten distinct but interconnected sections, Here to Eternity provides a perfect introduction to poetry for new readers whilst also offering something to the already well-versed
