Railway Rhymes, Hardback


"Railway Rhymes" is probably the first time that the poetry of railways has been brought together into one dedicated volume.

Here will certainly be found the old favourites - Philip Larkin's "Whitsun Weddings", W.H.

Auden's "Night Mail", John Betjeman's "Distant View of a Provincial Town", - but equally this little book is stuffed with forgotten gems like Edmund Blunden's "Two Wars" and Patricia Beer's "The Branch Line".

Divided up into chapters entitled Navigation, Engineering, Waiting, Travelling and Musing, "Railway Rhymes" is the perfect pocket companion for waiting room and train compartment alike.
