Laura Meehan, November 17, 2008 (view all comments by Laura Meehan)
While the poems probably reflect something about Keillor, I didn't feel that it sounded like he WROTE them. Some of these poems are really amazing. I'm not even Keillor's #1 fan (though I have family who are). I cried when I read one of them.

The sample of poems were interesting, but they all sounded like they were written by Garrison himself !

"Review" by , "A pretty dandy candy jar. The range of poets is wide, the tone is unpretentious, and the poems are all...good."
"Review" by , "No false advertising here; just, as compiler Keillor says, good poems, written accessibly in common language by English-language writers....These are poems to live in comfort with all one's life."
"Review" by , "[T]here are some poems that make you stop and turn up the volume, and those are what he's collected here. It's a very eclectic selection....[A] step up for poetry."
"Review" by , "[Keillor is] Will Rogers with grammar lessons, Aesop with no ax to grind, the common man's Molière."
"Review" by , "Keillor's choices lean heavily toward works that tell a good story or paint a tangible picture....[E]ven folks who say they don't like poetry can find something here to enjoy."
"Synopsis" by , A must-have collection for fans of Garrison Keillor and all lovers of good poems, this anthology includes verses 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.
"Synopsis" by ,
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 Keillor 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 verse about lovers, children, failure, everyday life, death, and transcendance. 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. It's a book of poems for anybody who loves poetry whether they know it or not.
