Not Marble, nor the gilded monuments Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme; But you shall shine more bright in these contents Than unswept stone, besmeared with sluttish time. When wasteful war shall statues overturn And broils root out the work of masonry, Nor Mars his sword, nor wars quick fire shall burn The living record of your memory: Gainst death and all oblivious enmity, Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room Even in the eyes of all posterity That wear this world out to the ending doom. So till the judgement that yourself arise, You live in this, and dwell in lovers eyes. Shakespeare, Sonnet 55 From Shakespeare to W.H Auden and Michael Rosen, poets have written moving and inspiring poems to honour and remember loved ones, while in response to war, the poetry of Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen has become among many others emblematic of an age and has helped us to understand the horror of war and remember those who died. In this 12th collection in the Nations Favourite series over 100 poems by Britains best-loved poets are brought together on the theme of remembrance to offer solace, scope for reflection and inspiration.
