The Norton Anthology of Poetry 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Lots of poems of course. I still don't "get" poetry, but this certainly broadened by exposure and deepened my appreciate.Predominant themes/recurring terms: the classics, other great poets (especially Donne, Jonson, and Shakespeare), heros, flowers, beauty, religion, death, childhood, love, sex, war, grass, spiders, and owls. Reading in chronological order forces one to wonder whether we have become that much more cynical over time or whether every age sees more inspiring poems as better in retrospect.
