The premise of the Poetry Pharmacy books, of which this is the third in the series, is that poetry has the capacity yo aid is through the ups and downs of life. Even if you are not an enthusiastic reader of poetry you undoubtedly will have experienced its capacity to capture the emotions of the moment, whether it be a funeral or a wedding. This however is not just another poetry anthology, William Sieghart provides both a "prescription" and an explanation of why a poem in appropriate for specific circumstances. The poems themselves are drawn from such a wide range of styles and time periods that there is sure to be something for everyone.

This edition covers such themes as Coming Together, Moving Apart, Grief, Checking Out and Tuning In, Finding Light, and Great Escapes. I appreciated so many of these poems and will be purchasing the hardback to sit alongside the other editions on my bookshelf. While it is a book well worth reading cover to cover it is one you are going to want to reach for time and again.

Thanks to Netgalley for a free ARC in exchange for an honest review

A bit depressing, I was looking to read something uplifting.

This book is just as healing and perfect as its predecessor. Every poem remedy is wonderfully and carefully thought out. As I read different poems on different days when I was feeling different ways I was amazed over how perfect each poem I read was and how soothed I was. It is not a book to be read in one sitting from front to back. It is a book that is meant to be dipped into in moments of need. I highly recommend this book along with the previous poetry pharmacy book. I am hoping with all of my heart for a third one to come out some day.… (lisätietoja)
