Synopsis

From the pleasure of escaping our daily lives and finding laughter, to musing on what makes the world go round and finding solace, poets of all ages have helped us find a way there. In 1996 BBC Bookworm held a poll to find 100 of the nation's best-loved poems. They were published in the Nation's Favourite Poems and featured classics, including Tennyson's 'The Lady of Shalott' and Wordsworth's 'The Daffodils', alongside popular contemporary poems, such as Jenny Joseph's 'Warning' and W.H Auden's 'Stop All the Clocks'. This collection continues to delight and move us with its eclectic mix of favourite poems. Yet, while it contains so many of our best-loved poems, there are a wealth of outstanding poems across the ages that we were unable to include in the collection. To celebrate the richness of poetry in our lives, BBC Books is holding another poll to find more of the nation's favourite poems. Perhaps the anthology will include Byron's poignant, 'So we'll go no more a roving', other outstanding pieces by Auden, Lawrence, Wordsworth and Shakespeare or Edwin Muir's 'The Confirmation'. The anthology will be published this autumn. In June the nation will be able to have its say.
