Summer beckons each and every one of us to its warm embrace. For many of us it is the season we can most enjoy; the days are long and warm and all manner of things become easier. Nature shows us her most colourful side as she fills the landscape with colours and textures of every hue. As for ourselves we all seem a little more approachable, a little more likable. For poets, the Summer season conjures up many themes and images.
Keats, Blake, Dickinson, Tennyson, and Longfellow, take us through many of these facets, ably joined by Meynell, Pope, Van Dyke, Stevenson, and many others. This volume is poured from the mouths of Ghizela Rowe and Richard Mitchel.
