A Poem for Every Day Of The Year
Edited by Allie Esiri, illustrated by Papio Press
“Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words” – Edgar Allan Poe
Allie Esiri brings us a stunning compendium of literature within, A Poem for Every Day of the Year. Containing 366 poems, this book does exactly what it says on the cover and will have you entertained throughout the year. Esiri carefully mulled over which poems to include, resulting in a very strong collection, spanning from familiar favourites to exciting new discoveries.
Poetry can be difficult to wrap your head around at first, however, Esiri offers us an accessible approach. Before each poem is a short introduction to briefly give some context for the reader. Greatly informative, these work as a guide for the many different styles of poetry. As you move throughout the pages and subsequently the seasons, the poems will develop and begin to match the seasonal motifs. During spring for example, they evoke themes of blossoming flowers, whilst come December they shift into a more festive tone.
The beautifully illustrated cover is immensely detailed, evoking the creativity and romanticism of the poetry inside. Lose yourself within the ocean of words, explore literary diversity and bring a little poetry into your life with this epic collection.
