An anthology of inspiring political poetry compiled by award-winning poet and novelist Ben Okri.
'Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you -
Ye are many - they are few.'
Booker Prize winning writer Ben Okri chooses 100 poems that celebrate (in the broadest sense) the many voices of politics, from polemics to meditations, from Shakespeare to Grime.
