Read full description of the books:
Decent collection of love poetry. It includes the standards, as well as a few I've never read before.
A couple criticisms about this collection, though. First, it was very heavy on 18th and 19th century British writers; sure, they are the "standards" but some additional variety (since the books explicitly states that it's a collection of British and American poets) would have been nice. Second, there were far too few women poets included. Again, considering the overwhelming concentration of 18th and 19th century British writers, that can be understood, but if more leeway were given to the poems that could have been included then there certainly would have been more women included. Third, unlike the last Dover Publications book of poetry I just read, this one gave absolutely no information about the poets included or why the poems were written in the first place. There was a plethora of poets included, I understand, and much information about some of these poets has long been lost, but sometimes motivation for the poem is just as important as what the poem says itself.
This collection does include some of my favorite poems ever written, which keeps me from downgrading my rating much more, but a wider variety of love poetry (i.e., including those I've never read before or those that are much more recently written) would have made it that much better.
