Lifelines: Letters from Famous People about Their Favourite Poem
Between 1985 and 1992, fifth formers at Wesley College, Dublin, wrote to a variety of famous people, asking them to name their favourite poem and give the reasons why it meant so much to them. In 1992, a collection of these letters and poems was published by TownHouse. The anthology was a huge success and has been reprinted many times since. In their letters to the teenagers, 223 famous people give honest, immediate, humorous, profound and revealing insights into themselves as they describe the reasons for their choice. Contributors include Garret FitzGerald, Maeve Binchy, Richard Branson, Mother Teresa, Jeffrey Archer, Jeremy Irons, Conor Cruise O'Brien and Cyril Cusack, making this a truly remarkable and unique anthology.
