There are great creations by Manet, Monet, Matisse, Fragonard, Picasso, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper and many more modern geniuses. Among the immortal poets represented are Yeats, Shelley, Roethke, William Blake, Rilke, Pablo Neruda, Edward Lear, Millay, Li Po, Marlowe, Shakespeare . . . the book is a veritable Who's Who of contributors to civilization.
