Overview
Voted Britain's best loved poem by viewers of BBC TV's Bookworm, this perennial favorite with its declaration of defiance against convention appeals to all those with a secret desire to throw off the strictures of propriety and set out deliberately to shock and be outrageous. It sums up this wish perfectly with its pronouncement: 'When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells." Reprinted here as a gift book with line drawings by Pythia Ashton Jewell, this edition of the classic is ideal both for those who know and love the poem and for those who have yet to relish its gleeful anticipation.
