Summary
"For as long as Christmas has been celebrated, poets and writers have sought to explore every aspect of it, whether the story of the Nativity, gatherings with family and friends, or the festive traditions that have grown up over the centuries. A Literary Christmas is a seasonal anthology collecting poems, short stories and prose extracts by some of the greatest poets and writers in the English language"--Jacket
