Happy Hour: Poems to Raise a Glass to
edited by Gaby Morgan, introduction by Jancis Robinson
A wonderful celebration of poetry about drink, drinkers and drinking places.
We raise a glass with friends and we drink in solitude to remember and to forget. Drink gives us the courage to love and comfort when we lose. All this and more is captured in this rich poetry anthology.
Many of the most famous poets have weaved the delights and temptations of drink into their verse. In Happy Hour: Poems to Raise a Glass To, there are chapters on whisky and beer, celebrations, why we drink and where we go to do it. Robert Burns is here, of course, alongside Yeats, Keats, Emily Dickinson, Hilaire Belloc, Sara Teasdale, Edward Lear, G. K. Chesterton, and many more. This edition features an introduction by wine critic Jancis Robinson.
