Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this series we look at narrative poetry through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a unique guide. Narrative Poems may be short of long but in essence they are usually written in metered verse with characters and dramatic in fashion. They can include epics, ballads, idylls and lays. In the collections we've gathered together for you, you will see at a glance the strength, vision and beauty that are gathered together by some of the outstanding poets of the ages.

Many of the poems are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Portable Poetry. The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. Among our readers are David Shaw-Parker, Sean Barrett and Richard Mitchley
