Minted: Practical Poetry for Life

Edited by Brian Nellist

‘The banks may not be lending at this moment but what Ruskin called “The King’s Treasury” is always open and generous’

Find real wealth in Brian Nellist’s selected poems 1500-1900. Revel in being able, as William Blake puts it in ‘Auguries of Innocence’;

‘To see a World in a grain of sand,

And Heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And Eternity in an hour.’

The Reader’s latest anthology has been edited with readers of all tastes in mind: a journey through four centuries of poetry to encourage further reading and exploration. Read aloud and hear the ‘inexhaustible riches’ speak to you as you embark on your own poetical adventure.
