This book was compiled from years of requests at the New York Times in the early 1900s. This anthology of poetry is the best I've ever found. My kids ask me to read poems aloud at our lunch time, and we all especially enjoy the humorous readings.
This is a collection of poems most loved by the American People, Not nec by Americans. Thomas Moore, Elizabeth Barrett Browning,Wordsworth,Tennyson, Lord Byron, Keats and more. The poems were compiled in the 1930s for this book. Dont expect modern poets. Do expect to be amazed and moved.
