If you are like me, and have not read these poets since high school or college, and when you read them you did so apathetically, then this is a book loaded with gems. Stylistically, thematically, and linguistically, these poems are at once familiar and numinous. They are protean forms in the mind and heart, forming shifting, evocative images and scenes.
The Dover Editions once sat on a rack near the register of book stores (do they still?) As if these little one or two dollar books were an impulse purchase like a pack of gum. The world has changed a great deal.
Why would the format be so different on PC and Kindle, when it's the same download?
There are numerous wonderful poems in this collection but I also found a few that were just too long and sometimes boring to read. I did like one of the long poems (Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner), but I have always loved the short poem forms best. Some of the long poems in this collection are longer than many short stories I have read. I am sure some poetry lovers enjoy these long never ending poems, but this is not my cup of tea. Nevertheless, there are many beautiful poems in this collection from some of England's most famous poets and that is why I liked it enough to give it 4 stars.
In conclusion, if you are an English poetry lover you will probably enjoy this volume.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy haiku)
The choice of poetry is really great - the most famous are there and a couple of less-famous gems as well. As other people noted, however, the editing of the kindle edition is really appalling in parts.
The lists of poem titles and the links to them disappeared leaving only links to the poets. The space in between the poems varies greatly - sometimes even within one poem, destroying the structure - which is really a shame. In some cases, the title of one poem is stuck under the previous poem or page.
Besides, there is no page navigation possible, so that the navigation must occur amongst the - aforementioned poorly edited - text, which can be confusing.
This Anthology - and its (kindle) readers - truly deserve better!
