Publisher's Synopsis

A beautiful hardcover Pocket Poets anthology of poems inspired by this storied city, from its teeming medieval streets to the multicultural metropolis it is today

Poems of London covers a wide range of time and includes not only the pantheon of classic English poets, from Shakespeare to Wordsworth to T. S. Eliot, but also tributes by notable visitors from all over, from Arthur Rimbaud to Samuel Beckett to Sylvia Plath, and contributions by an array of immigrants or the children of immigrants, including Linton Kwesi Johnson, Patience Agbabi, and recent Booker Prize-winner Bernardine Evaristo. All the famous sights of London, from the Thames to the Tower, are touched on in this vibrant collection, and denizens of its busy streets ranging from princes to pubgoers to pickpockets wander through these pages. The result is an enthralling portrait of an endlessly varied and fascinating place.

Everyman's Library pursues the highest production standards, printing on acid-free cream-colored paper, with full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a full-color illustrated jacket.
