Six Poets

Alan Bennett / Alan Bennett
Writers like to elude their public lead them a bit of a dance. They take them down untrodden paths land them in unknown country where they have to ask for directions.In this personal anthology Alan Bennett has chosen over seventy poems by six well-loved poets discussing the writers and their verse in his customary conversational style through anecdote shrewd appraisal and spare but telling biographical detail. Ranging from hidden treasures to famous poems this is a collection for the beginner and the expert alike. Speaking with candour about his own reactions to the work Alan Bennett creates profound and witty portraits of Thomas Hardy A. E. Housman John Betjeman W. H. Auden Louis MacNeice and Philip Larkin all the more enjoyable for being in his own particular voice.Six Poets is Alan Bennett's selection of English verse by his favourite poets - from Hardy to Larkin - accompanied by his own enlivening commentary.
