Poetry Matters

In 2002 Neil Astley of Bloodaxe Books published Staying Alive, the first in a series of international poetry anthologies, giving it the subtitle ‘real poems for unreal times’. With 500 poems to choose from, this makes an excellent source for exploring a range of twentieth-century work, including poems by W.H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop, James Fenton, Seamus Heaney, Anne Sexton, and Richard Wilbur. Please buy or borrow a copy of the anthology if you can.
