Songs of Ourselves Volume 2 (New Edition 2018)
Parts of the book are set for study in Cambridge's IGCSE, O Level, and Cambridge International AS and A Level Literature in English syllabuses, but it is designed to have a broader appeal and function, providing verse to enjoy for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
Like the first volume, it contains work by more than 100 poets from all parts of the English speaking world.
Famous poets, from William Blake to Les Murray, are once again mixed with many new and lesser known voices to create fresh and interesting effects and contrasts.
Poems have been carefully chosen for their universal appeal, avoiding anything very obscure or hard to interpret.
The poems are arranged in broad thematic sections, allowing many different connections to be made, which will stir readers' interests, inspiring them to explore the rich and ever expanding world of poetry in English.
Brief notes under the poems help with difficult words, phrases and references.
Can be used alongside Songs of Ourselves Volume 1 and Stories of Ourselves Volumes 1 and 2.
