    1. All night I sat reading a book,Sat reading as if in a bookOf sombre pages I only wish Maya Angelou had been included in this anthology And yet the collection was as Emily Dickinson said, If I read a book and it makes my body so cold no fire can ever warm me I know that is poetry If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry These are the ways I know it Is there any other way Give me the masterful rhythm of Langston Hughes, remind me of the melancholic brevit [...]


    2. I started this book a few weeks ago, simply because I have always loved to write poetry and I figured that reading some would be beneficial to my writing Never having seriously read poetry before, I didn t think I would like this book I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading Six American Poets An Anthology My new favorite poet is Emily Dickinson, my new favorite poem by her is 258.


    3. I recommend this book to anyone new or basically new to poetry and wanting to find out what they like It s a good start for getting to know the poets before buying their collected work only to find out afterwords one doesn t like them.I know now that I love Langston Hughes and don t like Wallace Stevens William Carlos Williams somehow didn t make that much of an impression on me I neither liked, nor disliked him.For Whitman, Dickinson and Frost there were poems I liked and poems I disliked, but [...]


    4. A good introduction to some important American poets I found myself understanding some and not others and appreciating some and not others The brief biographies were helpful.


    5. It s difficult to rate a book like this because some poems deserve a million stars while others deserve negative ten I figured three was a good compromise.


    6. In the introduction to this collection, Conarroe quotes a literature teacher as saying My young friends, I want to implore you to read some poetry every day for the rest of your lives even if it s only a few lines What wise words, and how appropriate of a quote to start this collection I wish that I could read poetry every day but for me, poetry is something that I have to have a clear mind to read be in a place where I can put the day s worries aside and focus on what the author intends or how [...]


    7. This is still one of my favorite poetry anthologies because it includes Emily Dickinson, William Carlos Williams, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens, and Langston Hughes What a diverse selection of poets And they are all very good in their own unique way I found it fascinating to read them side by side and to compare their poetry styles Also, I like how the editor was very choosy in his selection, making sure not to overburden the book with too many poems Every poem in the book is an ou [...]


    8. This book has something for everyone and a lot for most A couple of weeks ago I took the editor s advice and read a little each day something ponderous or inspiring from Emerson or Williams in the morning, a crisp insight from Dickinson at lunch, and something analytical or brooding from Stevens, Frost, or Hughes at night In no time I was through the book and wanted I also was aware of the type of poetry I liked to read and the mood I had to be in to read it Keeping a leisurely schedule is im [...]


    9. I suppose this anthology is a fairly decent primer for students if all they are really interested in is the poetry Someone gave a used copy to me to me as a gift I read it for the opportunity to review and of course the poems themselves are as worthwhile as they are familiar The biographies and analyses are quite thin, however There is no basis for the grouping That the subjects are all American is not enough Seems like something an academic might compile because he has to publish for a quatrann [...]


    10. this is great so far especially langston hughes this is the book to get your starting out poet .with bios, and samples, and some surprises hughes has this reoccurring character madam johnson, alberta k who s a lot like madea in her attitude i m wondering how much she is like his grandmother, who ended up raising him by default.

This really is just an appetizer, selections from each author designed to wet your palate and increase your appetite for The forward is really worth the book, though, and the info on each author was great.Good poetry always inspires me to write I think that s why I picked this up thanks for the recomend Ms Andrea Hamilton It didn t disappoint.


    12. This is a great collection, I love the poetry by these American poets and especially Dickinson s poetry appeals to me The collection feels very complete and is a great book to open and read a poem from time to time.


    13. Since I teach primarily American Lit, this little anthology has been useful for me to pull from for poems to use with my students Before each poet s work, there is also information on the poet, which has also been useful for me to share with my students.


    14. Truthfully, I didn t think this one was going to be that good I have never been a fan of Dickinson or Williams, but I thought the poems selected really highlighted the strengths of each poet and allowed meaning and emotion to shine through the verse.



    15. Probably not the greatest collection in the world, but I give it 5 stars because its a very portable collection with a lot of hits, plus it pretty much began my introduction to American poetry.
