A wonderful selection of poems from classic authors. It was thanks to this book that I discovered the beautiful words of Sidney Lanier, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Emily Dickinson, Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This collection comes in a classy presentation, which suits the poetry that it contains. ( )

Some solid entries, and others that are not widely distributed anymore. On the other hand, some entries that seem forced or don't need to be here.

I did like the prose supplement, even if it isn't completely topical.

A worthwhile venture into basic poetry for anyone. ( )

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. ( )
