9781605973708: Peacock Pie, a Book of Rhymes

Walter de la Mare (April 1873 - June 1956) was an English poet, short story writer and novelist. He is best known for his children's works and The Listeners. His love of imagination made his children's books very popular, but this also may have contributed to his other writings being taken less seriously. Peacock Pie was written in 1913. This extensive collection of de La Mare's poetry is a delight for children. The rhymes are fun and easy for children to learn. Sections include Up and Down, Boys and Girls, Three Queer tales, Songs, Beasts, Witches and Fairies and others.

About the Author:

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was born in Charlton, Kent. In 1890, aged sixteen, he began work in the statistics department of the London office of Anglo-American Oil. In 1907 he published his first collection of poems under the pseudonym Walter Ramal, but he soon established a wide popular reputation in his own name as a leading poet of the Georgian period with volumes like The Listeners (1912), Motley (1918) and The Veil (1921). He also wrote poetry and short stories for younger readers; Peacock Pie (1913), a collection of poems for children, is now considered a twentieth-century classic.Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was born in Charlton, Kent.
