From grief to toothache, heartbreak to homesickness, the power of finding solace in the words of another cannot be overstated.
Whether it was written 300 years ago or in our present day, poetry provides a comforting light in the dark. Words may not always provide solutions, but they can at the very least offer us a sense of hope, and the reassurance that we are not alone in our experiences and in our feelings.
The Poetry First Aid Kit is a ready-made toolkit that offers you a light in the dark, no matter what you are feeling. Comprising poems from literary classics to new, cutting edge voices writing about the world today, this extraordinary collection proves that we are never alone in the suffering we endure, and in the human spirit’s capacity to overcome.
Whether you are well-versed in poetry or sceptical to the power it holds, we hope that this collection will surprise you, entertain, and ultimately offer comfort through those difficult days.
Featuring poems from: Kae Tempest, Hollie McNish, Raymond Antrobus, Salena Godden, Theresa Lola, Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson and many, many more.
