Good Poems includes poems 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 such as Howard Nemerov, Charles Bukowski, Donald Hall, Billy Collins, Robert Bly, and Sharon Olds.

The poems are read by Keillor and a number of the poets included in the collection. Some are wise, some are funny, some are soothing or heartwarming. All were chosen for their wit, frankness, passion, and, in Keillor’s words, their “utter clarity in the face of everything else a person has to deal with at 7 a.m.”

    " This is the single best anthology of poetry. I read it cover to cover, and decided at the beginning to mark my favorite poems, or the ones that I wanted to read a second time (possibly a third or twenty-seventh), and I marked nearly every page. The poems are brief and powerful. I recommend it to everyone whether or not they think of themselves as poetry readers. "

    " I really liked this book. It offered a great variety of authors. I haven't read much poetry but will start now that I can pick some favorites as I came across several from this book that I find worth checking out further. I'm inspired to try my hand at writing some of my own. "
