This is a pre-loved book in very good condition.
BBC Radio 4's Poetry Please is the longest-running broadcast of verse anywhere in the world. First aired in 1979, the programme, a request show which broadcasts to two million listeners a week, has become a unique record of the country's best-loved poems over the decades since its inception.
The BBC has looked back through its rich archive of recordings to produce a poll of the most asked-for pieces ever: it is those poems that this anthology brings together. A showcase for the nation's favourite verse, Poetry Please is a treasure trove of our most requested and most listened-to poems. It is a compelling invitation for readers of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate the verse that we care so much about: from new readers to old, from schools to reading groups, this is a book for giving and a book for cherishing.
