The Everyman Anthology of Poetry for Children is a treasury of
great poems chosen for the sheer pleasure they offer to readers of
all ages. Compiler Gillian Avery's aim was to avoid condescending
to children and "to assemble a collection of poems that the owner
will not outgrow." With that in mind, she has included very few
works that were written solely for a young audience. The more than
250 pieces gathered here range from ballads to epics, from inspired
nonsense to memorable reflections on love and death. A wide variety
of poets grace these pages, from Mother Goose to Shakespeare, from
Emily Dickinson to Noel Coward, from Robert Frost to Ogden Nash.
Coleridge's "Kubla Khan" and Rosetti's "Goblin Market" will enchant
young readers as much as T. S. Eliot's "The Naming of Cats" and
Lewis Carroll's "The Mock-Turtle's Song" will entertain them.
Adorned with engravings by the eighteenth-century artist Thomas
Bewick, this collection belongs in every family's library.
