I ordered this book, A Literary Christmas: An Anthology, about a month ago, and it finally arrived late last week. It’s published by the British Library, and contains both poems and prose excerpts from short stories and novels. It’s a lovely little book, with a gem on every page, offering vintage line drawings and some color illustrations. (Sorry about the bad cropping job.)
Although some works are copyrighted, most of the material in this book is in the public domain. I am inspired by the content, and I will be posting a Christmas poem every day from tomorrow until Christmas Day. Be sure to check out each morning’s post; you will learn a few things, much as I did while planning them!
