I can also locate poets, and sometimes individual poems, by using the 'Go to' feature on the Kindle, so am able to dip in and out of the book.
Overall the book is a good selection of old favourites with a smattering of authors I have not read before ( though this may be a comment on the quality of my education rather than the quality of the selection). However, I would like to see a more even spread - some poets are given a lot more room than others. This is good if your favourites are the ones given extra coverage, but this wasn't the case for me. As an example - Edward Thomas wrote more than 'Adelstrop' and a little Herrick goes a long way.
In summary - a good, if uneven, selection from a variety of favourites with a few less usual pieces thrown in.
Happy to have it as a cheap book on Kindle but if I was being asked for more money I would probably buy something that fitted my taste more closely.
I am very happy with this book. It has a very good selection of popular poems, and I would recommend it to any poetry lover. Great for browsing through in waiting rooms!
