I have this book in two editions -- one dating from the early 20th century and another from the 1990s. The earlier one has been read more. There's a certain thrill to read a poem with a little inset portrait of the poet above it, and the poet's dates of birth and death under the picture -- only the date of death is not yet filled in because the poet was alive when the book was published.

I grew up with this book in the house and have turned to it countless times over the years. Merely by inclusion in this book, a poem became an automatic classic to me. The selection is varied and enjoyable. Although looking at the paperback versions I see pictured in "Popular Covers", it just doesn't seem quite the same as the vintage version I have. ( )

There is an inscription in this frojmj 1944, my first summer at camp in North Carloina, Camp Carlyle. It was an award. I loved the poems. especially The Highwayman and Trees. Truly favorites ( )

Terrific photographs and engravings, portraits of poets, accompany each poem. Some are still well known after 81 years, like Kipling, but others are obscure today.

This does truly contains most of my favourite poems. It has 'Charge of the Light Brigade' (Tennyson),'Trees' (Kilmer),'Recessional' & 'If' (Kipling),'Song of the Shirt (Hood).'Mercy' & 'Soliquy from Hamlet'(Shakespeare),'Abou Ben Adhem' (Leigh Hunt),'The Bells' & 'The Raven' (Poe),'Sea Fever'(Masefield),'The Highwayman' (Noyes),'The Spider and the Fly' (Howitt) and many others.
A nice handy size and shape to slip into the pocket too.
On a personal note,this is one of the books which has been in my possession the longest. It is also a bit of a mystery as somewhere along the line it has lost its introduction (does begin at the first poem as luck would have it) It has also lost page 59-60,so if anyone out there can help with either of the missing page information I would be most obliged.
