Shelves: poetry
Started years ago (1997 when I purchased it)...just reread Anne Bradstreet's "The Author to Her Book" (1672) & Ferlinghetti's "I Am Waiting" (1958); book opens with a selection from Mary Queen of Scots' "The Kings & Queens of Scotland." Over 400 poets over 400 years writing in English around the world, incredible mix of well known & unknowns with unexpected poems.
