Taking stock of 2020’s hybrid trends of brain training, mindfulness and positive thinking: Dancing By The Light Of The Moon is the literary answer to the wellness question. It is a manual that shows you how to digest, learn and harness poetry’s power using over 250 of Britain’s most well-loved poems. Step by step, Brandreth explains how to weave poetry into your daily routine. It will improve your linguistic skills and change how you see poetry forever; with the know-how from enlightening commentary. It may not be marathon training, but I feel more positive and sharper minded as a result from reading a few poems a day.
