About this product
- DescriptionBeing Human is the third book in the Staying Alive poetry trilogy. Staying Alive and its sequel Being Alive have introduced many thousands of new readers to contemporary poetry. Being Human is a companion volume to those two books - a world poetry anthology offering an even broader, international selection of 'real poems for unreal times'.The range of poetry here complements that of the first two anthologies: hundreds of thoughtful and passionate poems about living in the modern world; more of the greatest poems of the 20th century; and also many recent poems of rare imaginative power from the first decade of the 21st century. But this book is also rare in reflecting the concerns of readers from all walks of life. Such has been the appeal of Staying Alive and Being Alive that many people have written t only to express their appreciation of these books, but also to share poems which have been important in their own lives. Being Human has benefited from this highly unusual publisher's mailbag, including many talismanic personal survival poems suggested by our readers.
