"By Heart" is dedicated to the proposition that a great, traditional, but now sadly neglected skill, the memorizing of poetry, is capable of being revived. A short introduction explains how, and the body of the work is 101 great poems spanning 4 centuries and ranging from Shakespeare and Keats through to Auden and Heaney, offering a 'mental gymnasium' in which the memory can be exercised and trained in the most pleasurable way.
