Review quote

Thirty-eight poets, from Shakespeare to Judith Wright, are represented in this handsome, chronological collection... eclectic in its selection, this collection is an inviting, durable introduction to a broad range of poetry. School Library Journal A remarkable range of illustrations--evocative, humorous, strikingly graphic--accompanies favorite poems. Publishers Weekly This handsome edition introduces major poets through works accessible to young people ... few anthologies for this age group include such a fine selection of works from beyond the childhood classics, introduce the poets so vividly, or provide such a rich collection of haunting illustrations.
