Description - The Calling of Kindred by Adrian Barlow
An anthology of poems which reflect both the heritage of English language poetry from the 16th century to the present and the diversity of poetry written throughout the English-speaking world. The collection combines classic poems and less familiar ones, from male and female writers of established status in their own countries. The poets represented are mainly British, but American, Canadian, Indian and Asian English language poets are also included, as well as some poetry in translation. The poems take account of the religious and cultural sensibilities of different readers but, as far as possible, are accessible without long explanations. At the back of the book there is a short section containing biographical notes about the poets, together with short glossaries of unfamiliar words.
