Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"A word is dead/ When it is said,/ Some say./ I say it just/ Begins to live/ That day." Emily Dickinson's words are especially true of poetry, the sounds and rhythms of which often take root in quiet corners of the human heart. This excellent anthology provides a thorough introduction to the works of six well-loved poetsÂūDickinson, Frost, Longfellow, Poe, Sandburg and Whitman. Each is showcased in sections with richly detailed biographies to guide the student in understanding how the poets' lives influenced their work. Whitman's wide travels led to his creation of a new kind of poetry; Poe's inner turmoil found expression in his somber tones and topics. Different artists illustrate every section; each medium and style are again a reflection of the poets' individuality. Unfortunately, information meant to be helpful by referring to specific poems lists incorrect page numbers in every case. It is regrettable also that, regardless of their assertions that "Poe would approve of our approach," the editor reworked selected prose into poetic form. Poe's lyrical language could have provided the opportunity for discussion of the prose poem. The book contains a table of contents, an index, and definitions of difficult vocabulary for each poem. 2001, Blackbirch Press, $34.95. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Stephanie Farrow
School Library Journal
Gr 3-7-A compilation of six volumes in the "Poetry for Young People" series (Sterling). The book offers excellent examples of poems by Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allen Poe, Carl Sandburg, and Walt Whitman. It has plenty of good illustrations, fine introductions, and explanations of difficult words or phrases. Unfortunately, the books have all been reprinted, verbatim, without changing any of the introductory chapters. Thus, all of the page numbers cited refer to the original volumes rather than to this book. This causes repeated problems when the introductions refer to a poem on page 38, for example, and it actually appears on page 228. This new volume also suffers from an unattractive cover; the originals feature fine artwork. Stick with the individual titles.-Angela J. Reynolds, Washington County Cooperative Library Services, Aloha, OR Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
The Blackbirch Treasury Of American Poetry provides a beautifully illustrated collection of classic poems from six American poets: Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allan Poe, Carl Sandburg and Walt Whitman. A biography of each poet, vocabulary keys and notes to parents makes this an exceptional guide for parents working with kids from advanced elementary through middle school age ranges.
