9780571217854: 101 Poems About Childhood

Childhood, according to Rilke, was one of poetry's two inexhaustible sources. The poems in this anthology are an index of the idea of childhood, from nostalgia to expressions of love for children, from the celebration of births to the mourning of childhood death - childhood's psychology and persona, its pleasures and terrors, and the loss of innocence. This wonderfully evocative book draws from 400 years of poems: from Ben Jonson and Aphra Behn, through Blake, Clare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Coleridge, and right up to the twentieth century poems of Elizabeth Bishop, Sharon Olds and Paul Muldoon.

Book Description Faber and Faber, 2007. Book Condition: New. In compiling this anthology, Donaghy explains that he was 'most interested in poems about children's minds', whether observations of a child by an adult, poems about the development of language and emotion, or descriptions of events that dramatize 'the energy with which children encounter the world'. The poems are arranged chronologically, from a passage from Homer's Iliad to Kate Clanchy in the 1990s. Bookseller Inventory # 224192
