Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like its predecessor, Poem a Day: Volume Two contains 366 entries, one for each day of the year, plus brief, often amusing, always fascinating anecdotes and information about the poets and their poems. Drawn from the canon, translation, and contemporary poems, these works range in tone from tragedy to whimsy. Editor Laurie Sheck, whose own poetry has won wide acclaim, takes readers on a daily trip down the centuries and around the world, from the visionary style of Rumi to the challenging work of Brecht, from the socially conscious poetry of Gwendolyn Brooks to the avant-garde writings of Gary Snyder. Other selections include poems by Czeslaw Milosz, John Donne, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Raphael Alberti, Seamus Heaney, Marianne Moore, and many others. These poems are short enough to memorize, substantive enough to bear repeated readings, and accessible enough to be appreciated by both new and seasoned readers of poetry.
