The Best of Betjeman, Paperback / softback Book

The Best of Betjeman Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

John Betjeman, appointed Poet Laureate in 1972, is celebrated as the best loved poet of the twentieth century.

His subtle blend of wit and melancholia, affection and criticism continues to attract an ever-expanding readership.

From beneath his sparkling wit and deceptively simple nostalgia, Betjeman emerges as the authority on a broad range of subjects from conservation and church architecture to tradition and Englishness.

In this selection of his greatest poetry and prose, cherished classics such as Slough, Pot Pourri from a Surrey Garden and A Subaltern's Love-song sit beside rare gems like Metro-land, Betjeman's critically acclaimed film script.
