Being Human is the third book in the Staying Alive poetry trilogy which has introduced many thousands of new readers to contemporary poetry. The range of poetry here encompasses hundreds of thoughtful and passionate poems about living in the modern world; poems that touch the heart, stir the mind and fire the spirit; poems about being human, about love and loss, fear and longing, hurt and wonder. There are more great poems from the 20th century as well as many recent poems of rare imaginative power from the first decade of the 21st century.
