Clive James read, learned and recited poetry aloud for most of his life.

In this book, completed just before his death, he offers a selection of his favourite poems from the sixteenth century to the present, and a personal commentary on each. These chatty, unpretentious, often tender essays convey the joy of James’s enthusiasm and the benefit of his knowledge.
