Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every day people tune in to The Writer's Almanac on public radio and hear Garrison Keillor read them a poem. And here, for the first time, is an anthology of poems from the show, chosen by the narrator for their wit, their frankness, their passion, their "utter clarity in the face of everything else a person has to deal with at 7 a.m." Good Poems includes poems about lovers, children, failure, everyday life, death, and transcendence. It features the work of classic poets, such as Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and Robert Frost, as well as the work of contemporary greats such as Howard Nemerov, Charles Bukowski, Donald Hall, Billy Collins, Robert Bly, and Sharon Olds.

Synopsis:

Featuring poems selected by the host of radio's "The Writer's Companion"--some read by Keillor, others read by the poets themselves--this collection includes classic and contemporary poems about lovers, children, failure, and everyday life and includes works by Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Robert Bly, and others. Abridged.
