From early morning with Wordsworth on Westminster Bridge ('Earth has not anything to show more fair') to the 'close and sultry night' on which Walter Hartright met the Woman in White, this anthology represents the tremendous variety of writers' responses to London. Among the themes, each illustrated with an artist's vision of the city, are Coming to London, The High Life, The Low Life, and Survival Through Plague and Fire, with poetry and prose from writers as diverse as Blake, Kipling and Hanif Kureishi. No jacket.
