We raise a glass with friends and we drink in solitude to remember and to forget. Drink gives us the courage to love and comfort when we lose. All this and more is captured in this rich poetry anthology.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, pocket-sized classics with ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an introduction by wine critic Jancis Robinson.

Many of the most famous poets have weaved the delights and temptations of drink into their verse. In Happy Hour: Poems to Raise a Glass To, there are chapters on whisky and beer, celebrations, why we drink and where we go to do it. Robert Burns is here, of course, alongside Yeats, Keats, Emily Dickinson, Hilaire Belloc, Sara Teasdale, Edward Lear, G. K. Chesterton and many more.

Author Information

Voted the world’s most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis Robinson views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic. She writes daily for her website and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine, co-author with Hugh Johnson of The World Atlas of Wine and co-author of Wine Grapes, each of these books recognized as a standard reference worldwide. She is also the author of The 24-Hour Wine Expert, a slim paperback guide to the practical essentials of wine.
