The Best British Poetry free pdf "When I became a bird, Lord, nothing could not stop me. The air feathered as I knelt by my open window for the charm - black on gold, last star of the dawn." - From 'Bird' by Liz Berry The Best British Poetry has rapidly become one of the UK's most noted collections. Now in its third edition, Salt Publishing is proud to present this thoroughly inspirational selection from this year's best poets. Offering a completely comprehensive guide for enthusiastic readers and students, this anthology focuses on poems, not poets. Carefully chosen from a wide range of the UK's best print and online magazines, these poems spring to life on the page, breathtakingly original and varied in tone, illuminating, moving and unexpected. From big names such as David Harsent, Alan Jenkins, Ruth Padel and Sean O'Brien, to the wonderful work of Leontia Flynn, Mark Waldron and Charlotte Geater, this collection speaks for itself. The Best British Poetry 2013 concludes with just short biographical details and comments from each of sixty-eight featured poets, lending it a personal and revealing touch. A must for the bookshelf of the poetry amateur and aficionado alike.
