    For Your English Teachers/Students: Poetry By Heart

    Link: Poetry By Heart

    The poems of John Donne, Lord Byron and Sylvia Plath are among those included in an anthology for a new national poetry competition which launches in schools and colleges today.

    The anthology contains 130 pre-1914 and post-1914 poems selected by poets Sir Andrew Motion and Jean Sprackland and includes poems such as John Donne’s ‘The Good-Morrow’ and Lord Byron’s ‘The Destruction of Sennacherib’. The collection also includes modern poems like Daljit Nagra’s ‘Look We Have Coming to Dover’ and Patience Agbabi’s ‘Josephine Baker Finds Herself’.

    The full collection has been published by Poetry by Heart as an interactive timeline which encourages students to browse individual poems, and find out more about the poets who wrote them.

    The body of work will give students and teachers the opportunity to study a coherent range of poems from different periods, and will provide a foundation for exploring poetry over time.

    More than 250 schools and colleges have already registered to enter the competition, which will see thousands of students aged 14 to 18 competing to become national champion for their skill in memorising and performing poems. The school and college-level competitions will take place in the spring.
