Reviews - What do customers think about Great Modern Poets?

excellent book to browse or read cover to cover  Aug 14, 2008
This book has brought me closer to the world of great poets. I've ordered it for friends, and this site's low price and expedient shipping has made it easy to do. I recommend this book for prose and poet writers, appreciators of the arts and parents to introduce their children to the ever-expanding world of words on paper.
An Eloquent Introduction To Modern English Languge Poets  Mar 27, 2007
I purchased this book at a clearance price from a local bookstore. It seems that it's not getting the exposure or economic success that it deserves. It is an eloquent introduction to the work of great modern poets.

Each poet is introduced with an insightful and succinct one page biographical essay by the editor, Michael Schmidt. These essays are near poetry, in and of themselves. There's also a full page black&white photograph that seems to reach deeply into the character of each poet. Even the photos are poetic in their insight. The selections of poems range from one, to about six, for each included poet.

Without naming names, I can say that I'm familiar with the work of about half of the represented poets. Many of the others are familiar in name, but I've never read their works. There are several that I've never heard of, but I'm deeply impressed by all of them. I'm inspired to seek out more works of these poets, and perhaps that was the editors intent?

Sadly, we live in a world where artists of our language live, work, and pass on in relative obscurity. But if you are someone who loves beautiful ideas, beautifully expressed, I think you'll have much to gain from time spent with this book.
