K Magill, July 15, 2010 (view all comments by K Magill)
I recommend this book regularly to friends who are curious about twentieth century poetry but don't know where to begin. The voices in this collection come from practically every continent and span the entire twentieth century. These are socially and politically rooted poems that give voice to suffering and sorrow--but there is nonetheless great beauty here. A tribute to the ability to keep singing through the darkest times.
