BBC Poetry Series Boosts Poetry Sales in U.K.


A recent spate of poetry-related material has driven poetry sales in the U.K., selling copies of books that had languished on national shelves.

The BBC's Poetry Season project appears to have motivated people to go to the buy poetry. Imagine that!

A multimedia series with interviews and other related poetry items is credited with generating a 92 % bump in the sales of Sylvia Plath's poetry works and a whooping 300 % increase in the sales of John Donne.
