I have not read poetry since my school days but found this book absolutley delightful. It truly is a gem with great classics like Shakespeare's sonnets, Keats and Yates. It is also a great introduction to modern poetry too. I really liked John Fuller's poems (particularly Valentine) and will definetly read more of his work in the future. I highly recommend this book and it has definetly recaptured my love of poetry.

This an extensive, eclectic and wonderful anthology. A few of the poems were familiar to me and I had the pleasure of re-experiencing them, yet it is the pieces I had not previously read which brought the most joy. With an easy to follow contents, led by the poets' names in alaphabetical order, finding your faviourites is a quick and simple task. The introduction from James Fenton is illuminating and helps contextualise many of the poems in the collection but also stands alone as an informative introduction to anybody interested in the poetry of love. The hardback copy I purchased will be treasured for a very long time; no poetry-lover's shelf is complete without it. Look out for highlights from; Wendy Cope; Christina Rossetti; Philip Larkin; Fenton himself; and Shakespeare.

Upon receiving my order I opened it up immediately and began to flick through the poems. Of only the few i read, I found them incredible. I got more and more into the book and kept finding gems of poems. I'm glad I had to purchase this book for my englsih lessons. I'm enjoying it thoroughly and think I always will.

I loved this collection, its real mix of international, old and modern poems. Very accesable. Well worth the money Its in short collections by authors and so you can read it as chapters or cover to cover, either way its definatly worth a read. I know I will re-read this volume for years to come
