    If you like good poetry, this book is for you. There are all kinds, so you can skip over authors and styles you don't like to read the ones you do (if preferred). Spenser and Milton are touched on, and many other greats. If you like good poetry, this book is for you.

    A 3.5 I picked this up in England, it seemed fitting. It has been my side reading for about 8 months. There were some weeks I would pick it up 3-4 times. Other times I went several weeks without touching it. What I will most remember about it is curling up on my bed in a pool of winter sunshine as I read. There were plenty of poems I enjoyed, and plenty that bored me, and many in the middle. Worth reading.
