A sublime collection of beautiful poems written about birds to read again and again as a source of comfort and joy.

Poets and artists have always looked to birds for inspiration. In this collection Audubon's iconic birds illuminate, as well as illustrate, the poems. Since the poets and the painters here represented are amongst the greatest who have ever lived, their joint celebration of a common theme has resulted in an enchanting book to cherish for years to come.

Amongst the poets whose work is included are Rossetti, Chaucer, Blake, Shakespeare and Milton; Cowper, Wordsworth, Baudelaire, Tennyson, Keats and Shelley; twentieth-century writers, amongst them Hardy, Yeats, de la Mare, Laurie Lee and Ted Hughes; and such American poets as Thoreau, Whitman, William Cullen Bryant, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost and Theodore Roethke.
