"From time to time our love is like a sail and when the sail begins to alternate from tack to tack, it's like a swallowtail . . .' Poetry moves us when we read it but when we say or hear the words aloud it can be spellbinding. From Geoffrey Chaucer to Emily Dickinson, Emily Bronte to Benjamin Zephaniah, the poems included in this treasury have been chosen because they delight the ear as much as they do the mind. Poetry by Heart is a wonderful collection of the finest poetry ever heard." "Sir Andrew Motion was Poet Laureate from 1999 till 2009, and is Professor of Creative Writing at Royal Holloway College, London. Jean Sprackland's Tilt won the Costa Poetry award in 2008. She is a Reader in Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University. Julie Blake is the Director of the national poetry recitation competition Poetry By Heart which she co-founded with Sir Andrew Motion in 2012. Mike Dixon is an educational consultant specializing in English in the classroom."
