A beautiful hardcover Pocket Poets anthology of poems from across the ages inspired by the City of Light

Perhaps no other European city has so captured the poetic imagination as has Paris. Poems of Paris covers a wide range of time, from the Renaissance to the present, and includes not only the pantheon of classic French poets, from Ronsard to Baudelaire to Mallarmé, but also tributes by visitors to the city and famous expatriates from all over the world, including Pablo Neruda, Samuel Beckett, Rainer Maria Rilke, Vladimir Nabokov, Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Charles Bukowski, and many more. All the famous sights of Paris are touched on here, from Notre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower, as are such classic Parisian themes as food, drink, and love, and famous events from the Revolution to the Resistance.

GIFT APPEAL: Makes a perfect gift for travelers to Paris—or for armchair travelers who just love the idea of the place.

ENORMOUS RANGE: This collection covers a wide range of time, from the fourteenth century to the present, and includes not only French poets but also tributes by poets from all over the world.

POEMS ABOUT PLACE: Our location-themed Pocket Poets have done very well, from Poems of New York to Poems of the Sea.

MUSEUM STORE SALES OPPORTUNITY: A very appealing addition to the bookstore of any museum whose collection includes artworks from Paris or France.

BEAUTIFUL PACKAGE: The pocket-size hardcover features acid-free cream-colored paper, bound in full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a full-color illustrated jacket.
