    1. I've marked this book as read, but, really, a book like this is never truly finished. It's the kind of thing you just keep reading and if you own a Kindle this is one of the best poetry anthologies out there for it.

    2. Good, not greatI would say this is average far as anthologies go. Fair selections but I've definitely read better. Good, not great.

    3. Thank you Burns. There are better collections out there for sure, but I like the inclusion of so many contemporary authors, and especially glad to see a collection that isn't demonstrably politically correct WASP-y. THis anthology doesn't apologize. Glad to see Sandburg along the likes of Creeley, too much Langston Hughes, Sexton, and where is T. Hughes? The possiblities of an anthology are of course limited, I don't recommend this anthology and would instead recommend shorter more pointed colle [...]

    4. I won this book through a giveaway.This is the ultimate collection for the long-time poetry lover or for those who are just "dipping their toes in the pond". I read old favorites and undiscovered gems. I finished the book in two day but have since carried it around with me everywhere. I even read a poem or two a night to my thirteen year old daughter who I found shares my affinity to Romantics. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone, anywhere at anytime; the words within have the abilit [...]

    5. I won this book in a giveaway. The introduction is well written and charming. The anthology is arranged thematically rather than chronologically. Reading this book taught me a little about myself. It has been 31 years (yikes!) since I got my B.A. in English, and in the years since I have indulged in the luxury of only reading poets I like. This anthology reminded me of the scope of poetry and its themes.

    6. Wow, this is an amazingly good collection! Burns is a great anthologist -- the poems are arranged so that they reflect or comment on each other.I bought it for the Kindle -- I probably have a quarter or more of the poems already in various physical books, but this lets me carry them along wherever I go. I don't usually read poetry anthologies straight through, from cover to cover, but this one I did.

    7. So far the good poems are sparse, but I am not far into the book. All are well written, but much of the substance is questionable. The first poem is on how God created the world because he was bored. Not very illuminating, and quite untrue if one is consulting special revelation. However, I would be pleased to find at least 20 gems in this anthology. I suspect that I will. I will share them as I do.

    8. One of the best anthologies I've read. The chapter on love poems was my favorite because they included the dark poems one seldom reads about love and relationships that were sometimes funny sometimes sad but always very very true.

    9. The is a "best of" collection that I keep handy on my Kindle at all times. The anthology features renowned poets of the English language and is a must-have for all writers and readers of poetry. If you are a poet, dip into it when you're feeling stuck. The poems are organized by theme.

    10. I've always been skeptical of poetry collections, but this one is so well collected and organized that I can't help but love it.
