I purchased this book to repeat the reading of some of the great poems we studied in Literature class in High School. So far I am very pleased with having especially the "giants" to read and I'll, admit, if you won't tell anyone.....primise? ....that I hope with my old age now, I'll finish reading some of these and respond with an enthusiastic, "Ahh! I get it now!"
I was happily surprised to find that Abe Lincoln was even in here. I like the poem that was chosen by the editors that he wrote.
A few of the poems i sifted through were a few of my least favorite. While I enjoy T. S. Eliot, I do not like The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock! Perhaps it is because I had to spend so much time studying that poem, but it just is not one of my favorites. I also am not a fan of the poem The Red Wheelbarrow! However, as a poet myself, I do respect the man as an author no matter how much i dislike that poem.
Some of my favorites like Ars Poetica, Fire And Ice, and The Raven far exceed any poems I do not have a passion for. I highly recommend this book for anyone that loves poetry!
