9780713999617: Penguins Poems for Life

Taking its inspiration from Shakespeare's idea of the 'seven ages' of a human life, this new anthology brings together the best-loved poems in English to inspire, comfort and delight readers for a lifetime. Beginning with babies, the book is divided into sections on childhood, growing up, making a living and making love, family life, getting older, and approaching death, ending with poems of mourning and commemoration. Ranging from Chaucer to Carol Ann Duffy, via Shakespeare, Keats, and Lemn Sissay, this book offers something for each of those moments in life - whether falling in love, finding your first grey hair or saying your final goodbyes - when only a poem will do.

About the Author:

Selected by former Penguin Classics editorial director Laura Barber, a lifetime lover of poetry. Laura spent the better part of a year reading dozens of anthologies and many more poetry collections to put together this fantastic collection. Laura also put together Penguin's Poems by Heart and the forthcoming Penguin's Poems for Love. Laura lives in London, where she now publishes contemporary literature.
