The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems, Hardback Book

The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems Hardback


Classic poems from the English literary tradition come together in an anthology that traces our journey through life with a thoughtful blend of humour and playfulness, poignancy and nostalgia.

This beautifully illustrated collection contains the works of some of the finest poets in the English language.

It introduces children to the world's best poetry, from John Milton to William Carlos Williams.

Here too are the voices of Robert Frost, W. H. Auden, Eleanor Farjeon, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Marianne Moore.

Beautiful illustrations and classic entries make this a wonderful addition to any library.

Jackie Morris is a celebrated author and illustrator, and the winner of the Welsh Books Council Tir na n-Og Award for her title "The Seal Children".

Her illustrations for "How the Whale Became", by Ted Hughes (2000) were universally praised and prompted the "Guardian" to comment 'This exquisite new edition provides illustrations whose rich, grave, muted, almost medieval beauty is in perfect harmony with the deceptive simplicity of the words.'
