The Faber Book of English History in Verse

Author(s): Kenneth Baker (Editor)

Poetry

This anthology traces the history of England from the time of Boadicea to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and it does so in verse. It tells of the fates of kings - Richard III horseless, Charles I headless, George IV hopeless - while the voice of the common people may be heard through accounts of the Peasants' Revolt or factory songs from the age of Victoria.
