I was happily surprised to find that Abe Lincoln was even in here. I like the poem that was chosen by the editors that he wrote.
A few of the poems i sifted through were a few of my least favorite. While I enjoy T. S. Eliot, I do not like The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock! Perhaps it is because I had to spend so much time studying that poem, but it just is not one of my favorites. I also am not a fan of the poem The Red Wheelbarrow! However, as a poet myself, I do respect the man as an author no matter how much i dislike that poem.
Some of my favorites like Ars Poetica, Fire And Ice, and The Raven far exceed any poems I do not have a passion for. I highly recommend this book for anyone that loves poetry!
