After nearly thirty years and almost 500 poems, Poems on the Underground has become a familiar and welcome sight on London's Tube, paying tribute to the magnificent tradition of English poetry, and to those who have contributed to its richness and diversity. In this beautiful paperback edition, poems old and new, familiar and unfamiliar explore such diverse topics as love, London, exile, family, dreams, war, music and nature, and feature hundreds of poets including Owen Sheers, Paul Muldoon, Sylvia Plath, William Blake, D. H. Lawrence, Kathleen Raine, Roger McGough, Wilfred Owen, Wendy Cope and John Clare, among many others.

Reviews

The most democratic artistic intervention of my lifetime -- Maev Kennedy * Guardian * London's most original contribution to urban civilisation -- Simon Jenkins * Evening Standard * Beautifully presented ... This makes it an ideal book to dip into. Few people would see this book lying around the house and not be tempted to quickly browse through and find a morsel of verse that meant something to them at that moment. Everyone will find their own favourites in the book * A Common Reader *
