9780008130893: We British: The Poetry of a People

More than just an anthology, WE BRITISH is a history of Britain told through its poetry.

Written by Britain’s most celebrated political commentator for World Poetry Day.

This is the story of Britain told from inside. Hundreds of thousands of Britons over many centuries have left traces of what it was like to be them – letters, drawings, text messages, emails and social network exhibitionism. But unlike texts, emails or television, poetry allows people from distant times to talk directly to us, with nobody else getting in the way: a mediaeval ploughman, a Tudor drunk or a jilted Georgian woman can look us in the eyes.

What follows, then, is not a history of Britain in verse, but an epic story of what it was to be “British” – which means Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Northumbrian, Mercian as well as English.

Combining some of the greatest of our poetry, including poems far too little-known, with explanations and brief historical essays, WE BRITISH amounts to a surprising, uplifting journey towards a new way of thinking about who we have been and who we are.

Review:

Praise for Andrew Marr:

‘It is a wonderful book ... Special ... Startlingly different; here Marr's writing and his control of the material are remarkable. It should be required reading for all students of history, even more so for those who teach it in universities’ Spectator

Descripción Fourth Estate, 2015. Estado de conservación: New. Over many centuries, from Caedmon to Carol Ann Duffy, Britons have recorded their joys and sorrows, their loves and losses, in verse. In this anthology, which accompanied Radio 4's celebration of National Poetry Day in 2015, Andrew Marr tells the story of the country through the words of its poets. Alongside the work of such acclaimed writers as Chaucer, Shakespeare and Wordsworth are many lesser-known gems, offering us a glimpse of people's lives and experiences in every era. Silk marker.
