"More than three hundred of the most popular poems displayed on London Underground trains since the programme was launched in 1986, to the delight of the travelling public. In defiance of the image of poetry as obscure and elitist, displays of poetry on public transport have now spread to over fifty major cities ... [this] choice of poems is truly global, including the Greek poet Sappho, eighth-century Chinese poets and French symbolists, as well as Shakespeare, Donne, Blake and Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson and W.B. Yeats ... Classic favourites appear alongside contemporary poems from the entire English-speaking world, including several that have never before found their way into an anthology""--Jacket

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
Twenty years ago, two British poets, Gerard Benson and Cicely Herbert, and an American novelist and academic resident in London, Judith Chernaik, had the stunningly simple idea of displaying poetry in the otherwise unsold ad spaces on the Tube cars to bring the art of language and emotion to the travelling public, no strings attached, no previous experience required. It was immediately successful, and the public took to poetry released - perhaps for the first time - from the inhibitions of its academic straightjacket. The changing display of poems, five or so every four months, all beautifully presented on white landscape posters, was soon a fixed part of the London scene, and with it began a whole new public interest in poetry. The first anthology of Poems on the Underground appeared in 1991; this new collection continues the anthology still further, into 2006, and is an extended version of last year's New Poems on the Underground, which took the collection to the end of 2004. The new poems will include work by David Constantine, Thomas Hardy, Richard Lovelace ('Stone walls do not a prison make') and numerous others not yet selected. As always, some will be old, some new, some will be from American or Commonwealth writers, but all will celebrate the infinite beauty of the English language
