The Morning Star, Britain’s daily paper of the left, may not seem the obvious place to discover a weekly haven of poetry, yet that’s exactly what it has become thanks to Well Versed. This anthology brings together
the poems for the first time, presenting a unique mix of established poets including John Heath-Stubbs, Dannie Abse, Jacques Prevert, Victor Hugo, Nazim Hikmet, Alan Brownjohn, Adrian Mitchell, Mimi Khalvati, Bernard Kops and unknown talents selected by Morning Star poetry editor John Rety. Encompassing
the full spectrum of human life, from the mundane to the defiant, the romantic to the political, it surprises, delights and shocks, but never fails to challenge.

“Since its inception the poetry column in the Morning Star has raised circulation on Thursdays by 2%, such a hit has the column become.” — the Guardian
