Reader's note

This pocket sized poetry book adds a real touch of vintage charm to any bookshelf! The Task is seen as Cowper's best work and is highly regarded in many academic circles! The first section is entitled 'The sofa' and it speaks of the sofa's origins in a humorous way - I sing the Sofa. I, who lately sang, Truth, Hope, and Charity, and touched with awe, The solemn chords, and with a trembling hand, Escaped with pain from that advent’rous flight, Now seek repose upon a humbler theme: The theme though humble, yet august and proud, The occasion—for the Fair commands the song. - find out which direction this brilliant poem will end up going in! The perfect gift for lover of poetry!
