Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 476 p. Audience: General/trade. Poetry is a regular feature on Garrison Keillor's NPR radio show A Prairie Home Companion, but for the last five years, it has formed the core of Writer's Almanac, a daily, five-minute, 7 a.m. show on which Keillor reads a poem. Good Poems selects 350 pieces of verse from among the thousands that have been read on the Almanac for "Stickiness, memorability. You hear it and a day later some of it is still there in the brainpan. " Divided by subject-beginning with "O Lord, " moving through "Day's Work, " "Sons and Daughters" and through to "End" and "Resurrection"-the book includes work by writers past (Burns, Dickinson, Bishop, Williams, Shakespeare) and present: Robert Hass, Lisel Mueller, Tom Disch, among many others.
When I read poetry I always mark pages with a small peice of paper when I find a poem that really strikes me. This book has hundreds of peices of paper hanging out of it. I am so glad I found this book. It has really helped me on my creative journey.
