    1. I really liked this collection of poetry. It contains some very famous poems by some very well known authors including Shakespeare, Byron, Bronte, Yeats, Keats, Elliot, and more. If you find it you should grab it up. I must confess that I actually took the time to read through this twice. I had to, the poems all had a beauty about them that I wanted to soak them in as much as possible before reading something else. Some of my favorites were "The Road Not Taken", "Because I Could Not Stop for Dea [...]




    2. This is a great little book of all those classic poems that inspired you in high school and college literature classes. If it's been a while since you had an overview of poetry, this isn't a bad place to jump back in.



    3. This is a beautiful, portable collection that will never leave my bedside table. It has been decades since I've first read and studied these, and they are sweet old friends.


    4. Perfect for plane rides, road trips, and quick reads. Pocket Book of Poetry also serves as a good introduction to poetry for those who might be intimidated by larger poetry books, such as A Treasury of Classic Poetry, those who lack the patience or time to read thicker poetry books, or those who are disinterested in reading big poetry books but still want a broad variety of poems.


    5. A book of poetry - check! The first book you see in a bookstore - check!Kind of a morbid collection of poetry. Some of the poems reminded me of AP English. Don't know if that's a good or bad thing.


    6. Not all the poems deserve this high rating of course. But I really liked hiw this book was put together, and opened up for some new poets I had never heard of before. And come on. This book is gorgeous.






    7. A lovely collection of poems. I enjoyed reading the different styles of the various Poets. It is a very pretty book too.


    8. This was a nice sampling of authors for someone who is new to poetry and is looking for a broad range of work.
