The selection of forty poems encompasses some of the greatest poets of English literature, ranging from Chaucer through the Romantics and the Modernists to acclaimed Faber poets who are writing today. The Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, was shaped by the taste of T. S. Eliot who was its guiding light for nearly forty years. Since the sixties, each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who were arguably the finest of their generation. In recent years the creation of the "Poet to Poet" series has further broadened the scope of Faber poetry by including the work of great poets from the past selected and introduced by the contemporary poets they have inspired.
The Faber and Faber Poetry Diary for 2013 is a week-to-view diary offering poetry lovers a different poem or illustration to enjoy for each week of the year.
A wonderful diary. Lovely quality paper, a poem or image of a cover of a book to each week, and gorgeous font. A delight to use.
My only suggestion is to cover it in clear contact (be careful of the elastic holder!) as the cover is simply cardboard. While it looks and feels great, I know that with my level of use the corners will come apart very soon. It still looks great with contact over it (now it's shiny!).
I'd buy it again.
