    1. I m not highly read in poetry, but this was an especially wonderful collection for those who are new to reading it and want to get a sense of how great some of the most renowned American poets are I do like some of the poets so than others I m impressed by Robert Lowell the most, didn t really enjoy John Berryman some of Sylvia s poems are a hit or miss for me, though I m enchanted by her style I think I found a new favorite in both Anne Sexton and James Merrill I neither like nor dislike Roeth [...]


    2. I expected to like this than Six American Poets, which I enjoyed overall, and I guess I did, but the only one of these eight that totally knocked me out was Elizabeth Bishop I ve read a few of her poems before, but boy, this selection is fantastic I was looking forward to Ginsberg and Sexton, both of whom I generally like, but these selections were a bit of a letdown Although I did really like Kaddish this time around, and I hadn t before, so that s something for which to be grateful I liked Be [...]


    3. This was the first book of poetry I owned My uncle bought it for me for my birthday when I was 16 and I carried it with me to coffee shops around Michigan for a year or .


    4. The book I am sure is a fine representation of American poets and their poetry, but it was not for me Reading this was like walking through a swamp for me I enjoyed some of the poetry and I was already a fan of Plath, but oh manjust not my thing Took me forever to force my way through I did learn new information from it though, so that is always positive.


    5. Our lives are all potentially disastrous, and artists who live perilously close to the abyss make it possible for us to journey over threatening terrain, to experience its terror, and to return intact Picked this up mostly to learn about Sylvia Plath but I m glad to have been introduced to the works of John Berryman, James Merrill, Elizabeth Bishop and Theodore Roethke as well.


    6. Well, this is a great little anthology, but really I had to add it because notice the editor s name it was put together by a relative of mine Shortly after moving to New York the first time , my brother and I were perusing the phone book and we came upon a fellow Conarro with an e, but nonetheless our name I put Ryan up to calling, and when Ryan said, Mr Con uh ro the way we say it , the man sighed wearily and said, It s Con arrow Aha So that s whose been responsible for the botched pronunciatio [...]


    7. Some of you experienced poetry readers out there may find my rating cringe worthy but this has been my doorway into so much joy and awe that I m not caring My degree was in English Lit and I did my thesis on William Blake so shouldn t I be a sophisticated reader The truthiness is that the world of academia put the hurt on me for poetry Or at least that s my way of looking at it Poetry is saving my life right now and if all of you all don t get it or don t want to get it or think you want to ge [...]


    8. A mesmerizing collection of poets, mainly from the Modernist period, I enjoyed revisiting the works of Roethke, Bishop, Plath, and Sexton, some of my favorites, as well as discovering poets that had slipped under my radar all these years Merrill, Lowell, and Berryman An introductory smattering of poetry for readers who may not be quite as familiar with these works my husband has now discovered a love for Roethke s words and the joy they evoke in their readers and for those who want to, as Plath [...]


    9. I read this book in my Contemporary American Poetry class, my sopho year in college While writing poetry for my whole life, and taking Lyrical Poetry the previous had also influenced me, this book cemented the fact in me that I always wanted to create and write poems not necessarily publish them, just create them.


    10. I originally got this book for an Intro to Poetry class, but I find myself leafing through it and referring back to it a lot Anyone wanting a good taste of great American poets should pick up this anthology.


    11. read sylvia plath s tulips everyone is afraid of her cuz she is suicidal and everything, but seriously tulips is good lizzie bishop is one of my favorites, and roethke is definately up there too i could say hello to things roethke
