review We British We British Read & Download ☆ 104 Andrew Marr Þ 4 Read & Download ‘This book includes some of the greatest of our poetry I hope that it adds up to a new way of thinking about who we have been and who we are now’We British is much than an anthology This is a veritable history of Britain told through the verse of its greatest poets Wi. It took me a long time to read this book because I was often tempted to follow up or explore further poets or poetry extracts featured in it I would say that it opened windows for me In the concluding paragraphs Andrew Marr calls it a book about poets for lovers of poetry and I did find throughout the book that poems I had skimmed through before came to life for me when I learned about the poet and the contemporary relevance of the workIt is a history not written in terms of detailed conseuential events but a history of context of the prevailing climate of social pressures and enduring passions I remember being impressed with the opening which presents Caedmon our earliest known poet in translation as well as in the original Northumbrian dialect as freshly and vividly as though he were alive today It s not surprising that there should be a bit historical context in the early section of the book than in the later periods where Andrew Marr seems freuently to lament that he has to omit poems that he admires or limit himself to extractsHis tone is light even flippant but his commentary is both incisive and profound There were no than two or three occasions as far as I can recall now where his style of writing jarred One was where he was at pains to point out that he does not believe in God it didn t add anything to what he was saying and by comparison with his usually carefully phrased commentaries it stood out I was going to say like a sore thumb but then remembered that I actually got a sore thumb while reading this book as it s pretty fat and heavy last thing at night as one is drifting off but that didn t add anything either to what I am supposed to be writing about so I shall stop being hard on Andrew Marr for the odd personal intervention in a book that engrosses elucidates and elevates And he is careful in a politically correct sort of way He focus on poetesses oops I mean female poets although what we have of their work from early times is scant and he includes the entire United Kingdom though not necessarily he explains later the wider dominions of the former Empire unless the poet spent years in Britain and reflected its values TS Eliot is allowed He has no trouble delving into Scotland and Ireland although I felt that Wales took a wee bit of a back seat despite her ample supply of poetic material He gets to Scotland pretty uickly and I knew immediately that he is a Scot I hadn t particularly noticed the clues in the name He has great fun with the early Scottish poets and provides translations or summaries of the poetry in ScotsWilliam Dunbar s poem Lament for the Makars the makers of poems sends a shiver down my spine whenever I come across it It is an elegy for dead poets and Dunbar himself was sick when he wrote it Here are two verses The Latin line means The fear of death overcomes me or as Marr has it upends me The Latin line is in italics which I can never get to work on Goodreads I that in hail wes and gladnes Am trublit now with gret seikness And feblit with infirmitie Timor mortis conturbat me No stait in erd heir standis sicker secure As with the wynd wavis the wicker reed Wavis this worldis vanitie Timor mortis conturbat meThis early Scottish section which contains poems about freedom independence and what became the essence of socialism remains my favourite part of the book and I think Andrew Marr s It has great vigour and he seems happy to lay before us his deep admiration for these poetsThe chapter on Shakespeare is called England s Miracle but incudes the other big names of the Elizabethan and Jacobean reigns From there on there are plenty of big names to crowd the page but Marr is at pains also to seek out lesser known poetry that expresses something of the people and the times I had never heard of Margaret Cavendish who is described as a poet much impressive than the male poets of her time the Restoration Marr continues Reading her we get a vivid idea of how the early modern human mind was beginning to grapple with the disconcerting early revelations of science This includes an early animal rights poem where Wat is a hare I can t resist setting out here a few lines from the longer extract uoted by Marr The horns kept time the hunters shout for joy And valiant seem poor Wat for to destroy Spurring their horses to a full career Swim rivers deep leap ditches without fear Endanger life and limbs so fast will ride Only to see how patiently Wat died Men hooping loud such acclamations make As if the devil they did prisoner take When they do but a shiftless creature kill To hunt there needs no valiant soldier s skill Marr uotes Cowper on slavery Blake on the industrial revolution and Burns on egalitarianism and humanity not forgetting the latter s humour and popularity He does indeed keep up a fairly consistent levity of approach usually by tacking a post modernist comment onto the serious historical or social exposition I found it a highly successful way to trace the path of a people I could say so much I haven t even mentioned the period before the Great War shook the country into modernity or the potent time capsule of the war poets or the thirties social poets or the stunning political and emotional impact of the major Celtic poets too well known to list but you need to read the book I am an inveterate buyer of books but I surprised myself when I sent for the works of Alexander Pope just because Marr calls him a genius Watch this space Lord of the World the greatest of our poetry I hope Faulkner's County The Historical Roots of Yoknapatawpha that it
