Buy it as a Gift: buy it for a friend, buy it for yourself,
This review is from: The Great Modern Poets: The Best Poetry of Our Times (Hardcover)
This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves poetry.
It is the perfect book to buy for yourself if you like Poetry :)
In it you will find ~
50 of the most important (English language) Poets
150 of their poems, an average of 3 per poet
A brief bio, and a conversation about the value/role of their poetry
A fine black and White photograph of each poet, something of a work of art in itself
This is a reference I think I will find myself turning to regularly; for all the reasons listed above.
