Product description
'Being Alive' is the sequel to Neil Astley's 'Staying Alive', which became Britain's most popular poetry book because it gave readers hundreds of thoughtful and passionate poems about living in the modern world. Now he has assembled this equally lively companion anthology for all those readers who've wanted more poems that touch the heart, stir the mind and fire the spirit. 'Being Alive' is about being human: about love and loss, fear and longing, hurt and wonder. 'Staying Alive' didn't just reach a broader readership, it introduced thousands of new readers to contemporary poetry, giving them an international gathering of poems of great personal force, poems with emotional power, intellectual edge and playful wit. It also brought many readers back to poetry, people who hadn't read poetry for years because it hadn't held their interest. 'Being Alive' gives readers an even wider selection of vivid, brilliantly diverse contemporary poetry from around the world. A third companion anthology, 'Being Human' (2011), completes this modern poetry trilogy.
