An inspiring anthology of well known poetry about people chooses its selections from many periods and divides its subjects into age and personality groups. ""Under Twenty"", a section of poems about young people includes poems like Kipling's My Rival, and Whittler's The Barefoot Boy. ""My Fair Lady"" is a gathering of love poems- Shakespeare's Sylvia, Irving's A Certain Young Lady etc.; and the aged in the section called ""All That's Past"" are Old Crimes by Albert Greene and de la Mare's Old Susan. These and more make rich reading.
