100 Essential Modern Poems. By Walpole, Peter But as a rich, concise education in modern poetry this book can scarcely be surpassed. Parisi begins with Yeats and ends with Rita Dove. Typically, a poetry anthology offers several poems from major poets, and then a handful or even just one or two poems from poets of lesser reputation. This splendid new anthology offers a different formula. But as a rich, concise education in modern poetry this book can scarcely be surpassed. Of course, lists of the hundred greatest (or essential) movies or novels or modern poems are splendid for the purpose of starting an argument.

Also includes many fine but forgotten poets and several contemporary poets who will surprise, stimulate, and amuse readers.

Presents the masterpieces of fifty great women poets in the English language over the past 150 years. Like the widely praised 100 Essential Modern Poems, this accessible volume is filled with wisdom and insights to delight. Includes ideas about courage and endurance, life and death, faith and hope, and the continuing search for meaning, as well as the favorite subjects of love, marriage, family dynamics, and nature. Selected by Joseph Parisi, former longtime editor of Poetry magazine, with Kathleen Welton, the collection features such acclaimed poets as Emily Dickinson, Lucille Clifton, Maxine Kumin, Audre Lorde, Marianne Moore, Mary Oliver, Linda Pastan, Sylvia Plath, Kay Ryan, and May Swenson. Also includes many fine but forgotten poets and several contemporary poets who will surprise, stimulate, and amuse readers.

Do not buy Kindle edition! Many of the poems are printed in such tiny type that they are virtually illegible! I have never seen a book with
such small type before. Nor can the type size of the poems be altered. I enjoyed reading the bios and those poems printed in readable
type size.

The poems selected gave me a good flavor of Modern Poetry. Old friends (Yeats, Eliot, Auden, Pound, Stevens) joined poets I new less well in an informative tour of modern poetry. I ended up enjoying the feature of the book I thought I'd like the least: the short biographies of each poet.

This collection provides a good overview of modern poetry. However, it would be much more enjoyable if it were formatted so it could be read on an IPhone. The biographies of each poet read fine but the actual poem fonts are so small they're almost impossible to read.

My 16-year-old son has started writing poetry and I think he has talent and promise. So I ordered this book thinking to send it to him. After dipping here and there and reading some 20 poems I changed my mind. The compiler, Joseph Parisi, was a longtime editor of Poetry Magazine so who could know poetry better? I realize that no one can choose 100 "essential" poems to satisfy everybody. But shouldn't poetry try to reach the average educated person? I am no poetry aficiando but I have compiled some 20 books of poetry over the decades, including a few by today's poets. So why are so many of today's modern poems so unsatisfying? Why has poetry reading declined so much in the past 100 years? I recently went to Barnes & Noble in Boulder CO wanting to buy Poetry Magazine. Boulder is a big university town, loaded with educated and cultured people, and Barnes & Noble there has a zillion magazines on its racks. But not Poetry Magazine. Is the Poetry establishment just talking to itself? Is a poem that is easily understandable automatically rejected? Do the professors turn up their noses at such poems? They sure don't help their "publish or perish" dilema. Anyway, one good thing about this book is the introductions to the poets by Parisi. But the better choice, at least in my opinion, was "The 100 Best Poems of All Time" edited by Leslie Pockell. Despite its title, it is a wonderful collection and it also has brief comments on each poem by Pockell.

I love this book. A good introduction for the person who, like me, is interested in learning more about poetry.

This was used in a writing poetry class and was very helpful. Also the poems were interesting and fun to read.

This is great for anyone who really enjoys poetry. It gives a different perspective to the work of poets because it pays special attention to the female writers that usually get ignored.
this was one of many books we purchased for my daughters college course and it was great to save some money
