Beautifully illustrated with nostalgic scenes of England’s pastures, sleepy villages and dramatic landscapes, this anthology includes timeless poetry from the eras of Chaucer and Shakespeare through Pope and Marvell, to Coleridge, Tennyson and Wordsworth right up to Vita Sackville-West and John Betjeman.
