Book "Our Worlds Most Cherished Poems" Edited and Published by John Campbell, World of Poetry Press, copyright 1986.
A big beautiful book full of poems and images. In excellent shape with minor wear.
The poems in this book are not the poems you studied in your poetry classes in school, written by people who belonged to an earlier generation. They are the creations of the people you see picture din this book; people who live now, shop in supermarkets, drive cars, discuss current politics and have attended the same school you have. They are people like you but poets, with the gift of expressing vividly in todays language, their personal reactions and convictions. You may not agree with all of them but you will understand them and know what motivated them to write what they have written. Too often, these poets are not heard because they live today and write about the now. By the time they have achieved quite enough fame to be widely acclaimed, their great themes will have slipped into the past. The vibrancy and empathy you will feel, as you read these poems, will then be gone. Meet them, pictured here; listen to them through their poetry and share with them your own memories and experience. - Eddie-Lou Cole
