Walt Whitman said, ...poetry is the voice of the nation, expressing its deepest concerns, ambitions and longings, which is certainly true of the great classic poetry of America. This wide-ranging anthology, from the earliest poets of the 16th century to the present day, reflects the changing preoccupations and visions of Americans, including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, E.E. Cummings, and more. Enjoy 60 poems from leading classic figures as well as popular anonymous works such as Frankie and Johnny, which are an integral part of American consciousness.

Listener Opinions

    " It probably deserves a higher rating, but I'm just not a big poetry person. This collection was nice though. "

    " Longfellow is one of those guys that I'd heard about for years, but never actually encountered. It turns out he's sort of a bizarro Housman: everything rhymes and is Romantic, but also wholesome and wonderful. Kudos on making the Puritans good guys!
    Good stuff all around. "

    " Hey, it's Wadsworth. Can I add to the millions of words already said about the man. Think not. Won't not. Don't not. "

    " The good ones are real good ones. Evangeline is thrill.
    There are others, though. "

    " some of this unreadable, some famously misused as disciplinary implements, but the poems to his wife are to make a grown man cry "

    " another poetic genius i have recently ran into... "

    " I enjoyed Evangeline, and the rest was fine but that was it, just fine. I expected more.

    Longfellow seems more a recorder, an historian, than an artist. Everything carefully sculpted and fit into its mold. Certainly has his place, though.
