Children’s English History in Verse
Kenneth Baker (ed); Adam Stower (il)
This authoritative anthology gives a highly original view of English history through the eyes of poets. From Boadicea right through to the present day, the greatest English poets, including Milton, Swift, Keats, Shakespeare, Larkin & Hughes, have used verse to comment upon social, political & economic circumstances as they see them. Learn about the fate of kings -- the horseless Richard III, the headless Charles I, & the hopeless George IV -- as well as the voice of the common people, with accounts of the Peasants’ Revolt, Victorian factory songs, & the impact of New Labour on 1990s politics. The book is divided chronologically into key historical periods, with an introduction to each section & a running narrative to set each poem in context. Illustrations.
