If you like poetry and birds, this book removes the hendiadys. Two engaging essays by the editors, and a wealth of poems from all sorts of poets on all sorts of birds. The highlight for me was discovering the poetry of John Clare, who both editors agree is The Bird Poet. He gives an uncanny sense of what it must be like to live as that particular bird – he gets under the feathers.
