Every poem in this collection speaks deeply and directly to men, capturing precious moments, powerful insights, and honest glimpses of life. The themes are universal: birth, death, love, loss, war, beauty, and family. Both classic and contemporary poetic masters are represented, including William Shakespeare, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Robert Frost, Gwendolyn Brooks, Robert Pinsky, Langston Hughes, and Dylan Thomas. Each poet speaks to men in voices and language they trust and understand, without using contrived poetic forms, avant-garde imagery, or esoteric references. This powerful anthology will leave no reader unmoved.
