edited by John Hollander
Books & Co./Turtle Point, New York, 1996. 196 pages.

Here’s a collection of some truly great poems. In choosing the 100
best poems to memorize, John Hollander also chose poems that are great for
reading, reciting, or simply enjoying.
I would love to buy this book and memorize all of these poems. As
it is, I enjoyed dipping into this book and adding a little poetry to my
life, remembering some of the great poems I first heard in English class.
These are poems worth remembering and worth enjoying.
