This review may contain so much praise that you may think I'm in the pay of Kindle, I am decidedly not! This book was a serendipitous find and a SUPERB buy for me, a beginner (though equally good for non beginners I'm also sure), for several major reasons. It contained a large number of beautiful poems by many well known poets over the ages, which were well laid out for electronic reading and easily navigable via an interactive index of poets (using the "Go to" button). Of huge help were the tutorial on appreciating poetry (to 4 levels), a great Appendix on meter and explanations of all the new terms involved (e.g. Iambs, Amphibrachs etc.). These combined to make made understanding so much easier, releasing the true beauty of some otherwise initially mystifying poems. It has led me to go completely overboard, as a new convert, and buy the full collections of many of the poets therein, and more. Note that many of these are under £1, even free. A tip, "highlight" the titles of your favourite poems, also adding numbered "Notes" on why you appreciated the poem (or it's meaning to you, whatever you want); just these highlights and notes then also most helpfully and interactively show in page order when you press "View Notes and Marks". Next I chose "Six Centuries of English Poetry, Tennyson to Chaucer" which sent me onto another planet of pure joy. I wish I'd discovered all this 50 years ago, I would never have become an accountant! Thank you Kindle.
