It’s National Poetry Day…apparently.
Here at the Lutterworth Press however we feel that poetry is for life, not just for October 6th (which seems a little arbitrary, who decides these things?).
Anyway, anything that raises interest in poetry is no bad thing, so in keeping with National Poetry Day here is a plethora of poetry publications to placate any particular penchant- look at that! I’m a poet and didn’t know it!
Beautifully illustrated, this collection of specially selected verses is ideal for introducing young children to the exciting realm of poetry, from the make-believe to the everyday.

One of the most significant works of poetics of the Renaissance, covering the historical development of poetry, the theoretical basis of poetics, and the practicalities of reading and writing poetry.
The first book to examine John Milton and his work from the perspective of the 17th Century art of preaching, and how this leads to a wider appreciation of his poetry and prose.
An original study of the art and poetry of one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, with a particular emphasis on the nature and the origins of his symbolism.
A challenging and original work that argues that the arts, and poetry in particular, offer an invaluable and under-explored medium for developing and communicating theological insights.
