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.
