Many thousands of pupils have developed a love of poetry through the classic Touchstones series. Now this bestselling Key Stage 3 anthology - celebrating its 40th anniversary - has been completely updated to meet the demands of today's classroom and the 2008 National Curriculum. Touchstones Now contains a rich selection of poetry, ranging from Chaucer to modern-day poets, including many unusual and thought-provoking pieces together with much-loved favourites. The unique structure of the anthology enables pupils to examine how differing poetic constructs work as well as exploring poetic themes and studying individual poets. Many of the popular features of other Benton anthologies such as Picture Poems and Painting with Words are integrated into this new edition.
