I have enjoyed many an idyll with this collection. Includes three poems of Frederick Mortimer Clapp! Whitman, Yeats, Walter de la Mare, Emily Dickinson, Frost, Hopkins, Sandburg, Wallace Stevens, Ezra Pound, Dylan Thomas, e.e. cummings, and Yeats are well-represented. Includes my relative Sydney Lanier. Causley's Cowboy lament is here. Honig's "dive into the eye of the needle", and Kipling's Last Picture. No Robert Service or funny stuff. This is not the volume for "poetry" across its horizon. Focused on "modern"?! And Blake is not?(!) ( )
