The Nation's Favourite Twentieth Century Poems

The Nation's Favourite: Twentieth Century Poems - Griff Rhys Jones

Unless people stopped reading poetry after 1970, this is an odd collection of poetry - most of it was written in the first half of the 20th century. Also, a large part of the selection is nature based poetry, which is fine if that is what you are looking for. 


My personal taste in poetry is more geared towards the human condition. Of course this is the point of most poetry, even that describing the natural world, but natural symbolism leaves me cold.
