Anglo-Saxon World: An Anthology
Beowulf, The Battle of Maldon, The Dream of the Rood, The Wanderer, and The Seafarer are among the greatest surviving Anglo-Saxon poems. They, and many other treasures, are included in The Anglo-Saxon World: chronicles, laws and letters, charters and charms, and above all superb poems. Here is a word picture of a people who came to these islands as pagans and yet within two hundred years had become Christians, to such effect that England was the centre of missionary endeavour and, for a time, the heart of European civilization., Kevin Crossley-Holland places poems and prose in context with his skilful interpretation of the Anglo-Saxon world; his translations have been widely acclaimed, and of Beowulf the poet Charles Causley has written, 'the poem has at last found its translator'. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Ten Poems About Cats
These lovely poetry pamphlets make perfect presents - unusual, beautiful, worthwhile and definitely not for throwing away.<br /><br />They come with an envelope and bookmark left blank for your message. Interesting and enjoyable to read they make an excellent introduction to the work of contemporary and historic poets.<br /><br />Cats have provided writers and artists with inspiration for as long as they have been winding themselves purring round their owners' legs and fixing them with their big, green eyes. The poems in this pamphlet are evidence of some wonderful cats and their amusing and endearing ways, from Thom Gunn's kittens galloping like a re-enactment of Ben Hur along the corridor, to Jen Hadfield's cat asking to be let in at the kitchen door...then out again... . It goes without saying that this pamphlet is best enjoyed with a cat on your lap.<br /><br />'Puss with delight beyond expression,<br /><br />Surveyed the scene and took possession.' <br /><br />from 'The Retired Cat' by William Cowper (1731 - 1800)Made in Britain.

Poetry Pharmacy: Tried-and-True Prescriptions for the Heart, Mind and Soul
'Truly a marvellous collection ... There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder - the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss' Stephen FrySometimes only a poem will do. These poetic prescriptions and wise words of advice offer comfort, delight and inspiration for all; a space for reflection, and that precious realization - I'm not the only one who feels like this.In the years since he first had the idea of prescribing short, powerful poems for all manner of spiritual ailments, William Sieghart has taken his Poetry Pharmacy around the length and breadth of Britain, into the pages of the Guardian, onto BBC Radio 4 and onto the television, honing his prescriptions all the time., This pocket-sized book presents the most essential poems in his dispensary: those which, again and again, have really shown themselves to work. Whether you are suffering from loneliness, lack of courage, heartbreak, hopelessness, or even from an excess of ego, there is something here to ease your pain.'The book is delightful; it rightly resituates poetry in relation to its biggest and most serious task: helping us to live and die well' Alain de Botton
