"I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by..." Classic poems are those that endure, striking a responsive chord in generation after generation of children. Poems your grandfather loved are probably the same poems that your children will find irresistible. In Oxford's Treasury of Classic Poems, all kinds of poems are collected together: old and new, short and long, funny and sad. Many of the poems are very famous and well-loved, but there are also some surprises and a few "classics-in-the-making." "Isabel met an enormous bear, Isabel, Isabel, didn't care..." Nonsense verse by Lear and Carroll, story poems by Tennyson and Keats, and funny poems by Belloc and Betjeman are joined by poems from modern poets such as Charles Causely, Ted Hughes, and e. e. cummings. The illustrations, in color and black and white, have been specially commissioned from a variety of artists, with each artist bringing a fresh interpretation to the poems. "'Is there anybody there?' said the Traveller, Knocking on the moonlit door..."
The beautifully designed Treasury is destined to become a classic in its own right, joining the acclaimed Oxford library of anthologies for children and their families.
