Publisher's Synopsis

We Recommend

William Sieghart is the founder of World Poetry Day, and in the decades since he has continued to be an absolute encyclopedia of the poetical works available to us today. It is absolutely amazing that he focussed this superpower into his 'Poetry Pharmacy' initiative; where poems from around the world and throughout history are prescribed as soothing and healing antidotes and balms for whatever issue or worry might be plaguing our minds. Poetry for the good of all!


'A matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss' Stephen Fry on William Sieghart's bestselling Poetry Pharmacy

The Poetry Pharmacy
is one of the bestselling (and most giftable) poetry anthologies of recent decades. Now, after huge demand for more prescriptions from readers and 'patients' alike, William Sieghart is back. This time, tried-and-true classics from his in-person pharmacies are joined by readers' favourite poems and the new conditions most requested by the public - all accompanied by his trademark meditations (warm, witty and understanding, with just a twist of the challenging) on the spiritual ailments he seeks to cure.

From ageing bodies and existential crises to long-distance relationships and embracing your slovenliness, The Poetry Pharmacy Returns caters to all-new conditions while drilling further down into the universals: this time, the challenges of family life, and of living as a person among others, receive a much closer look. Perfect for the treasured friends, barely tolerated siblings, beloved aunts and revered grandparents in your life.
