The sonnets of Shakespeare, elegies by Thomas Gray, and odes to mice and lice by Robert Burns are commonly anthologized. Here, however, The World & I has produced a truly unique collection designed to help you explore poetry beyond the ordinary, from that of Pulitzer Prize winner Louis Simpson to eighth-century Japanese verses by Lady Hegun.

Poets and Poetry

In fact, whereas Asian poetry is largely ignored in the United States with the exception of haiku, we include in this set, for your enrichment, Graeme Wilson’s interpretations of poems from China, Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Add to these the work of Cuban, Israeli, Estonian, and other poets and you have a collection unlike those found anywhere else.

We also present appreciative essays about the contributions of poets such as Robert Frost, John Crowe Ransom, Robert Graves, and René Char, as well as take a look at some novel approaches to poetry. For those curious about other cultures and times, looking into the personal reflections of poets offers the chance to experience an intimate, shared moment between the poet, his or her cultural inheritance, and ourselves.
