Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Poet John Hollander has divided the poems into Tales, Sonnets, Songs, Meditations, and Counsels. COMMITTED TO MEMORY is a wonderful gathering of poems for memorization"--Harold Bloom.

Synopsis:

Presented by The Academy of American Poets, Committed to Memory is the essential poetry collection for every home library — a gathering of the world's best-loved poems, chosen specifically for memorization. These poems carry on a timeless tradition kept alive not in libraries but through a cycle of reciting, listening, memorizing, and reciting anew.

From beloved classics like Rudyard Kipling's "If' and Robert Frost's "The Road Less Traveled" to family favorites like Ernest Lawrence Thayer's "Casey at the Bat" and Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky", the poems in this collection will engage and delight both young and old. The poets include some of the greatest names in literature — Shakespeare, Poe, Whitman, Bronte, Hardy, Browning, cummings, Joyce, and Dickinson. A truly timeless collection, Committed to Memory is a gift of love and language that will enrich readers' lives for years to come.
