Poems on Nature - small hardback (Macmillan Collector's Library Edition)

£9.99

The poems in Poems on Nature are divided into spring, summer, autumn and winter to reflect in verse the changes of the seasons and the passing of time.

Since poetry began, there have been poems about nature; it’s a complex subject which has inspired some of the most beautiful poetry ever written. Poets from Andrew Marvell to W. B. Yeats to Emily Brontë have sought to describe the natural environment and our relationship with it. There is also a rich tradition of songs and rhymes, such as ’Scarborough Fair’, that hark back to a rural way of life which may now be lost, but is brought back to life in the lyrical verses included in this collection.

This edition features an introduction by Helen Macdonald, author of the international bestseller, H is for Hawk.

This elegant and diminutive book is from the Macmillan Collector's Library collection. Beautifully produced with gilt edges, a ribbon marker, bespoke illustrated cover and real cloth binding, every Macmillan Collector’s Library hardback adheres to the same high production values. They're small enough to travel with and striking enough to take pride of place on your bookshelf. These much-loved literary classics also make the perfect gift.

Hardback, 208 pages.
