Quercus Poetry

Poems for a World Gone to Sh*t

Released 08/03/18 Label Quercus Genre Lyrics Cat no. 9781787471030


A beautiful little book of short, simple, classic and contemporary poems to dip into, to make life feel better.

From Shakespeare and Shelley to Lemn Sissay and Kate Tempest, poets have always been the best at showing us we're not alone, however sh*t things might seem.

Funny, reflective, romantic and life-affirming - here is an anthology of poems to remind you to keep on looking at the stars: from that first 'what the f*ck' moment to empowering you to do something about this sh*t and ultimately realising that life is still beautiful after all.

Rediscover old favourites and find some new treasures - you might be surprised just how much poetry can help.
