Full Description


Just as BARTLETT'S FAMILIAR QUOTATIONS is the volume everyone reaches for when seeking an elusive citation, BARTLETT'S POEMS FOR OCCASIONS is the ultimate resource for finding the poem that will hit just the right note for that special family milestone, public address, or private moment of contemplation. What poems do you read when a country has gone to war? To mark the beginning of a new career or the end of an old one? To celebrate a new love or console a grieving and bereft family? Organised in three parts - the Cycles of Nature, the Phases of Human Life and the Enduring Themes - the book is the perfect vehicle to translate the wisdom and expression of the greatest works of poetry into our everyday experience. Among the many poets included here are Charles Baudelaire, William Blake, Catullus, Emily Dickinson, Goethe, Ogden Nash, Li Po, Sappho, Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, Edith Wharton and others.
