The New York TimesWhy did no one think of this before?"
—The New York Times Review of Books
The Classic Hundred is fascinating, and I have much enjoyed just turning pages.... [The poems are] charmingly presented by a very perspicacious host and poet, William Harmon.
"It's fascinating to open this book and discover which... poems have been favored over the years.... William Harmon's comments on the poems are just right: bright, brief, and appreciative."

This is absolute garbage. It's an anthology of how NOT to read poetry. Go to Amazon and read the reviews of people who actually about it. Harmon should be arrested for artistic vandalism.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
