Just today, a friend was telling me that they wanted to explore poetry more. Here is a lovely way to begin or, if you already enjoy poetry, to continue. The editor of this book has curated a collection of just thirty-one poems, a number that will encourage reading poems, while not overwhelming in any way. In fact, readers may well want to go on to explore additional works by the poets featured here. Just a few of them include John Donne, Robert Frost and Rudyard Kipling, along with others less well known by me as, for example, Kate Seymour Maclean.
I enjoyed my time with this title. Others will too, I think.
Many thanks to St. Martin’s Press for this title. All opinions are my own.
