Description
Germaine Greer presents an anthology of poems culled from all periods, ranging from Roman to medieval poetry, and including the best-known paean, Marvell's "The Garden", Tennyson's comic "Amphion", and Donne's meditations on individual flowers, herbs and trees. It is a book of beautiful texts and intriguing information that can be read along with the seed catalogues in the dead of winter, or in the gaps between tasks on a busy day in spring, or between snoozes in the hammock in the deep midsummer.
