Omtale; Great Short Poems redigert av Paul Negri

(Dette innlegget inneholder affiliate linker).

Periodevis leser jeg en del diktsamlinger. Nylig leste jeg Great Short Poems redigert av Paul Negri, og nå kommer omtalen.

Beskrivelse fra Goodreads
This outstanding anthology of short verse offers poetry lovers an impressive sampling of more than 150 masterpieces spanning over 400 years of English and American literary history. Although short in length (the longest are 24 lines, most 16 lines or less), these poems are long on beauty, power, imagination, and originality.
Included are such memorable compositions as John Donne's "Death Be Not Proud," Shakespeare's "When, in Disgrace with Fortune and Men's Eyes," "On His Blindness" by John Milton, William Blake's "The Tyger," Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," Byron's "She Walks in Beauty," Shelley's "Ozymandias," as well as works by Alfred Lord Tennyson, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Amy Lowell, William Butler Yeats, Robert Frost, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Langston Hughes, Dylan Thomas, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and many others.

Mine  tanker om boka
Det var noen dikt jeg likte bedre enn andre, men på generelt basis var det en ok introduksjon til korte dikt. Det jeg derimot følte manglet litt, var flere kvinnelige, samt afro-amerikanske poeter slik at det var enda større spekter.
