Revisit old favourites

As much as there is to celebrate in the success of new poetry books, nothing can diminish the enduring value of classic poetry that has stayed with us for decades, centuries, or even millennia. Journey to the 20th century in the work of poets like Sylvia Plath and Maya Angelou, turn back the clock further to writers like Edgar Allen Poe and John Keats, or step into the mythological worlds of classical poets like Homer and Virgil.
