    Comments about 100 Best-Loved Poems:

    A bit too conservative and traditional a collection for me but then it is the best-loved so that probably explains it. I would like to have seen some difference in the collection all the same. not boring poems but perhaps boring altogether. HOWEVER has some gorgeous stuff in it.
