A Golden Treasury of Grand Poetry...according to Francis Turner Palgrave!

Palgrave's Golden Treasury of Verse was first published in 1861, and updated by Tennyson three decades later. Subsequent editions have seen the Treasury updated to include emerging poets in each new generation--so that the work represents the very finest, most-loved and classic poems of the last few hundred years, including contemporary poets such as Andrew Motion and Carol Ann Duffy.

Join Michael Edgar, Cameron Hindrum and special guest Georgie Todman on an engaging tour of this vast compendium of poetic voices and forms.

It was from Palgrave that I learned that literature had a sound, that language mattered more than story, that rhythm haunted the imagination, and that love and grief and loneliness interested me more than any other subject.' - Howard Jacobson, The Guardian
