Ten Bedtime Poems (Volume Two) Edited by Germaine Greer By Candlestick Press
Renowned author and academic Germaine Greer chooses ten poems for our bedside tables.As she writes, “…the true bedtime poem is a doorway to the subconscious… . Dreaming is solitary but beds are also meeting-places”. All ten poems – some of them familiar, all of them profoundly interesting and beautiful – are connected to the tradition of poetry about sleep. “My ten poems are all central to our poetic tradition, and so can be relied upon to fire the most multifarious of chain reactions.” Germaine Greer Poems by W. H. Auden George Gordon (Lord) Byron John Donne Anne Finch (Countess of Winchilsea) Henry Howard (Earl of Surrey) Kathleen Raine William Shakespeare Alfred (Lord) Tennyson William Wordsworth William Butler Yeats

‘Instead of a Card’ poetry pamphlets make perfect presents – unusual, beautiful, worthwhile and definitely not for throwing away. They come with an envelope and bookmark left blank for your message. Interesting and enjoyable to read (Candlestick Press are probably the only poetry press to be described as “scrumptious” by the Poet Laureate) they make an excellent introduction to the work of contemporary and historical poets.
