This publication complements the landmark BBC series 'My Life in Verse', making our official tie-in anthology available as a paperback.

It includes poetry from Yeats, Tennyson, Blake, Larkin, E.

E. Cummings, Don Paterson, Roald Dahl, Benjamin Zephaniah and many more. Within the anthology are poems chosen by actress Sheila Hancock exploring human relationships, most poignantly the death of her husband John Thaw; comic Robert Webb has selected the modern verse that inspires him; musician Cerys Matthews celebrates the rich verse of Wales, Ireland and Scotland; and writer Malorie Blackman chooses the rich variety of multicultural poetry that has spoken to her.
