The book opens with a beautiful heart felt preface from Laura Barber the curator of this book of poetry She tells the reader that the structure of the book was inspired by a passage from As You Like It in which the character Jacues describes a human life as having seven distinct stages This collection of poems is guaranteed to the reader to have something for every stage of your life but I don t think it lived up to its guarantee Death mourning and loss were a prevalent theme Even during what I thought would be the pleasant sections That coupled with the dense poetry made for daunting and melancholy reading Poetry isn t exactly my kick but I am getting better at reading it I think I m certainly reading broadly as this book features some well known poets Sylvia Plath William Blake Thomas Hardy as well as lesser known poets and poets from all walks of life But I still only enjoyed twelve of the poems in this collectionSome of the poems I enjoyed Escape at Bedtime by Robert Louis StevensonDutch Lullaby by Eugene Field Childhood and His Visitors by Winthrop Mackworth Praed Going Place by Lemn SissayThirty Bob a Week by John Davidson For Desire by Kim AddonizioThe Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock by TS EliotA Song of a Young LadyTo Her Ancient Lover by John Wilmot Dirge Without Music by Edna St Vincent Millay The Unuiet Grave by an anonymous 15th century poetTransformations by Thomas Hardy
