First Sentence
And wilt thou have me fashion into speech The love I bear thee, finding words enough, And hold the torch out, while the winds are rough, Between our faces, to cast light on each! - I drop it at thy feet. Read the first page

By Late Reader on 18 July 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a worthy anthology for any secondary school and University Student with little surprises, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Alfred Tennyson, Robert Browning and Matthew Arnold among the many famous names. As a relative newcomer to poetry and a complete dilettante I tend to be more interested in the psychological states poetry evokes. What comes across for me is the abject depression contained in much of the poetry here, and the pessimism barely disguised within the realm of myth. I draw particular attention to Tennyson and the Lady of Shallot. I would recommend this to both lovers of poetry and to psychotherapists, but no one with a predisposition to self-harm.
