This series contains poetry and prose anthologies composed of writers from across the English-speaking world.

Songs of Ourselves is an accessible one-volume introduction to the astonishing range of forms, styles and content of verse written in the English language over more than four centuries, containing work by more than 100 poets from all parts of the English-speaking world.

Key Features
  • Famous poets, from Shakespeare to Heaney, mingle with a wide range of lesser known (but no less exciting and original) voices old and new, often neglected by anthologies.
  • Parts of the book are set for study in Cambridge IGCSE, O Level and AS and A Level Literature in English syllabuses, but it is designed to have a broader appeal and function, providing verse to enjoy for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
  • Poems have been carefully chosen for universal appeal, avoiding anything very obscure or hard to interpret.
  • Poems are arranged in broad period sections. Within and across these sections loose thematic groupings allow many different connections to be made between the poems, enhancing appreciation and broadening and deepening any reader’s experience of poetry.
