This book looks more elegant in reality than it does by the photo portrayed within this website; since it is shines a copper colour.  My only wish is that they would include the 'Jabberwocky' rather than merely two poems by Carroll.

Loved It! One thing I must say, the book was a lot bigger and heavier than expected. Content was lovely, it was not just the most popular poems. It included poetry that wasn't as well known, but just as beautiful.

Excellent collection of poetry! Like another review said the book is more elegant in reality! A beautiful brown book with shiny copper and gold decorations. The poetry themselves spans nearly 500 years from 16 to early 20 century and are limited to the English language.
