    I have actually received this book three times from my grandpare

    I have actually received this book three times from my grandparent (different occasions, silly guy) and I still treasure it all the same for such a wide variety of tasteful poetry.  From humor (Ah, Robert Burns) to the more creepy tale of the Highwayman, this is a fantastic treasury of beginning poems any person could have.

    Good but not Great

    This was a good book I can't say great but good, what I like about the book mostly is that it had a lot of my favorite poets in it.

    The Finest Collection of the Greatest Poetry in the World!

    I have used this book as gifts to endless numbers of people, all of whom have loved it and treasured it dearly. It has an old world feeling and the collection is a composite of the world's greatest and most significant poetry. One can pick up where ever they wish and open to a page and be lost in their own imagination and feeling. I have yet to find a collection of poetry that has everything. This collection does. It is a book that can easily fit into a purse, backpack, or the side of the car. I take it with me everywhere.

    A Must Have.

    A perfect gift. Ageless. It was in the family bookcase as far back as my memory will allow. My brother's and I, and now our children all, have a copy. It's a classic, a perfect introduction to a young mind to acquire an appreciation for the art of poetry. Enjoyed by all ages. Used as a reference or an example of the best of poetry. The Gettsburg Address, Patrick Henry or Longfellow, Shakespeare, Poe, Browning and Millay. I have lived 50 years with this book yet I invariablely come across a poem that I haven't heard. My copy is 'nevermore' than arms reach away.
