100 Best Poems to Memorize

edited by John Hollander

Reviewed May 25, 2004.
Books & Co./Turtle Point, New York, 1996.  196 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (808.81 COM).

Here’s a collection of some truly great poems.  In choosing the 100 best poems to memorize, John Hollander also chose poems that are great for reading, reciting, or simply enjoying.

I would love to buy this book and memorize all of these poems.  As it is, I enjoyed dipping into this book and adding a little poetry to my life, remembering some of the great poems I first heard in English class.  These are poems worth remembering and worth enjoying.
