Summary
From the Publisher: Like the widely praised 100 Essential Modern Poems, this lively, up-to-date guide to modern poetry is filled with wisdom and insights that will delight, engage, and inspire readers of all ages and interests. This bountiful collection presents memorable poems written in the English language over the past 150 years-masterworks and new classics by great authors from Emily Dickinson to Rita Dove, Marianne Moore and Edna St. Vincent Millay to Maxine Kumin and Mary Oliver, Sylvia Plath and Linda Pastan to Kay Ryan and Marge Piercy-that offer compelling perspectives on timeless topics of love, marriage, family, friendship, nature, faith and hope, courage and endurance, and life as lived intensely and to the full. Brief biographies introduce each poet and her work
