The Works 3 contains poems by 52 poets - one for every single week of the year. There are seven poems by each poet, which gives a fantastic variety to the book. All the major themes and forms of poetry are to be found within this chunky paperback, and there is a biography of each poet at the beginning of their week. Another essential book for teachers, but also a joyful celebration of the best poets of all time, both classic and contemporary. Tennyson, Wordsworth and Shakespeare rub shoulders with Brian Moses, Roger McGough and Brian Patten. A must-have book.
