Publisher's Summary

Allie Esiri’s anthology, A Poet for Every Day of the Year, is the perfect introduction to 366 of the world’s greatest ever verse writers.

Perfect for listening and sharing with all the family, it is bursting at the seams with familiar favourites and exciting new discoveries. Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, Christina Rossetti and Emily Bronte sit alongside Roger McGough, Wendy Cope, Imtiaz Dharker, Leonard Cohen, Sylvia Plath and Ocean Vuong.

Each of the 366 poems features a small introduction that gives a sense of who the writer was, and not just the greatness of their work. Some offer insightful biographical details or key historical context, while others may provide quirky, humorous anecdotes.

The day-to-day format of the anthology invites listeners to make poetry a part of their daily routine, and makes sure that they discover something inspirational, life-affirming, provocative, moving or entertaining each and every day.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Poems too short

I realise the book is called Poet For Every Day however I still expected the poems to last longer than the intros given to each daily poet. The poems really are quite short and then you’re quickly on to another lengthier mini biography. Disappointing for that fact alone and surely the best introduction to a poet is to sample their works? I will add though, it turns out the book is quite good at helping me to sleep!
