    Ana Sampson's anthology of poetry written in praise of what Blake so memorably called our 'green and pleasant land' contains many works equally as famous as Jerusalem: among them, Shakespeare's 'This royall Throne of Kings, this sceptred Isle', Keats's 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness', and 'If I should die, think only this of me' by Rupert Brooke. The poems are arranged by season, time of day and topics such as birds, weather and the seaside, with an introduction, bibliography and index.
