“Here is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, an arm around the lonely shoulder”, writes Stephen Fry, “a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss.” Universal, inspirational, delightful: William Sieghart’s The Poetry Pharmacy is less a collection of verse than a companion for life. There are words here for everyone, for every moment in our journey, dispensing wisdom and reassurance. As practical as it is beautiful, this anthology combines traditional verse favourites with new discoveries, ideal for poetry novices and ardent fans alike. A book to cherish. Pocket-sized and ideally portable, The Poetry Pharmacy presents the most essential poems in Sieghart's dispensary. From everyday worries to finding the strength to tackle life's greater hurdles, this is the perfect volume to have by your side.
