I bought it for my students and ended up keeping it because of how much you can do with it. I love the diversity, even though I think they could do a better mixture of classical, famous poets and less classical and less known poets. But for the price it's an excellent resource for teachers and poetry lovers. :)

I love collections of poetry, and this book assembles in one place all the poems we treasure and remember because they have stood the test of time (what a cliche, but isn't it really true?) I keep it by my bed and read at least one poem every night. I also put a copy in my emergency shed, so I'll have it when the big quake hits southern California and I'm going out of my mind with boredom.
