    This is a beautiful collection of poetry specific to English language poets They are from countries across the World The book is strikingly illustrated with a rich array of paintings and drawings that the artist developed after studying the poetry traveling to some of the countries and trying to put to paints what the authors put in words A daunting taskThis books is not a young child's book as the content is suited for age 10 and up So while this is published by a primarily children's press Candlewick Press it is suitable for children and adults This will make grand addition to the home library for those who wish to read or study poetry and for those who wish to introduce their children to the words of great poets A truly nice collectionThe poets in this anthology encompass a timeline from 1564 AD William Shakespeare's birth to 2000 AD Judith Wright's death There are brief biographies of the poets and paintings of them as well This provides easy access for children students to become acuainted with the poets aid their research into English literature and the authors of that genre Provided also is a grand little index in the back of the book And then there are the delightful lines of poetry themselvesThe Mock Turtle's Song Lewis Carroll p84Will you walk a little fastersaid a whiting to a snailThere's a porpoise close behind usand he's treading on my tailSee how eagerly the lobsters andthe turtles all advanceThey are waiting on the shingle will you come and join the danceWill you won't you will you won't youwill you join the danceO Captain My Captain Walt Whitman p76O Captain my Captain our fateful trip is doneThe ship has weather'd every rack the prize we sought is wonThe port is near the bells I hear the people all exultingWhile follow eyes the steady keel the vessel grim and daring;But O heart heart heartO the bleeding drops of redWhere on the deck my Captain lies Fallen cold and deadThis eclectic anthology of poems includes serious deep thinking thoughts as well as light hearted jovial However true to poetry there is often loneliness and heartbreak hidden in the lines of the funny or lightheartedI received a complimentary copy from the publisher to facilitate a review of my honest opinions I received no compensation

    I've been searching for a new poetry book for months that would be great for reading to my kids and perhaps have information about each poem the authors and have beautiful illustrations This is perfect I also love the selection and that the poet's are listed in order of when they lived

    i like this book because the poetry in it is inspirationalClock A Clayby John Clare 1793 18641In the cowslips peeps I lye Hidden from the buzzing flyWhile green grass beneath me liesPearled wi’ dew like fishes eyesHere I lye a Clock a clayWaiting for the time o’day2While grassy forests uake surpriseAnd the wild wind sobs and sighsMy gold home rocks as like to fallOn its pillars green and tallWhen the pattering rain drives byeClock a Clay keeps warm and dry3Day by day and night by nightAll the week I hide from sightIn the cowslips peeps I lyeIn rain and dew still warm and dryDay and night and night and dayRed black spotted clock a clay4My home it shakes in wind and showersPale green pillar top’t wi’ flowersBending at the wild wind’s breathTill I touch the grass beneathHere still I live lone clock a clayWatching for the time of day

    Good not great My 11 13 and 15 year olds were tolerant of it They liked some of the poems found some confusing or weird and didn’t like a few I agreed with them I did like the little side blurbs that gave some author background It was nice to run into some of our favorite poems Tomorrow by Shakespeare Paul Revere’s Ride everything Tennyson and Dickinson O Captain MyCaptain Who Has Seen the Wind Jabberwocky Mother to Son

    A very good collection the illustrations were good If you love poetry and are wondering what poets you want to read this book is a good way to do so Most of the poets had 2 to 3 poems I would recommend this for an older reader because some of the poems are about death slavery and smugglers One of my favorite authors is Lewis Carroll and it had very cute illustrations for How Doth the Little Crocodile and Jabberwocky

    I read this to the children Some of the poems where too advanced for them but I enjoyed reading them and I think it's good for them to start getting familiar with these great works The poems are arranged by author in order of their birth I liked the mini biography that started each poet's section It helped to put the poems into context


  8. Faith Neece Faith Neece says:

    I found this book kind of randomly at a used book store but I’m so glad I got it While this book is aimed at young readers I really valued reading it as an adult It actually exposed me to a lot of classic poetry I hadn’t read before The illustrations are really beautiful and help you appreciate the poetry in a new way It’s a great book for all ages


  9. Adina Caskey Adina Caskey says:

    The perfect collections of illustrated poetry for my 5th grader and I for English Read slowly over about 4 monthsa poem or two each school day was the perfect pace for us Some we had to read over just because they were so fun and beautifully illustrated

    I was really expecting to encounter old favorites discover new poems but I was kind of disappointed The only new poet I read that I liked was Hillaire Belloc
