Robert Pinsky has served as the U.S. Poet Laureate, but he might be better described as our national evangelist of poetry. For decades, in anthologies, blogs, and readings, he has spread the word about the poetry of others. In Singing School, he continues this gentle mission with a gathering of 80 poems that together show the diversity of this craft. From the deep lyricism of William Butler Yeats to the rock solid observations of William Carlos Williams, this anthology breathes with the range of its offerings. The other poets represented include Mina Loy, Aphra Behn, Allen Ginsberg, and John Keats. Editor's recommendation.
