Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have had this book for at least 50 years. It is undoubtedly the best compendium of collected poetry ever. Several of the poems I have found most personally important over the years, and hence committed to memory, I first encountered here. This book is indispensable for anyone with any regard at all for our best poetry and literature. Bob Drew

Format: Hardcover
I am looking at the revised edition that moved from two sections to five sections.
1) A Little Treasury of the Chief Modern Poetry of England and America
2) A Little Treasury of Modern Lyrics
3) A Little Treasury of the Poetry of the Forties
4) A Little Treasury of Modern Light Verse
5) An appendix which contains prose statements by poets on "Poets and Poetry"
One of my favorite poems from this book is by Robert Frost:
FIRE AND ICE
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great and would suffice.
