‘I Wandered As Lonely As A Cloud … and Other Poems You Half Remember From School’
By Ana Sampson
Published by Michael O’Mara Books
RRP £5.99 (paperback)
ISBN 9781782430124

This is a great collection for any poetry lover – and if you have a sentence from a school-days’ poem that you can’t remember for the life of you which poem it is quoted from, then this is the book you need!

From Chaucer, Shakespeare, Browning, Pope and Keats to Duffy, Larkin and Auden – this book spans the ages right up to modern day. It print the poems in full or a decent extract of, gives you a bit of info on the poet and the poet’s era, explains poetic forms and techniques as you read through making it much more than another collection of poems. It’s well-thought out and presented, and an enjoyable read.

Highly recommended for readers of all ages.
