KIRKUS REVIEW

The poets included are the foundation names in the British and American poetry of the fairly recent past. The editors have avoided the most often anthologized selections and each poet is represented by less familiar but equally typical work with subjects that ring all the changes of adolescent mood, from a wry whimsey by Wallace Stevens to the loneliness in Colum's Young Girl: Annam. From Amy Lowell to Dylan Thomas, these are the poets whose names are the currency of courses in poetry in today's high school and colleges. Further, this book is the sort of dip-in-and-browse-through collection that provides a taste which can lead to a need for more.
