A Treasure for Poetry Lovers Jun 15, 2007
Caroline Kennedy has gathered together a true treasure in The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The organization and presentation of these poems is, in its own way, perhaps the truest reflection of the personality of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that we've seen to date. The poems are divided into seven groups, each of which is introduced by a short recollection of her mother by Ms. Kennedy. As one progresses through the poems, one sees the bond between a mother and her children, between a President and a First Lady, between an individual and her dreams mirrored in the wonderful photographs of the family included with the poems. Ms. Kennedy's collection of her mother's favorite poems would be a touching gift for the graduate, for the newlywed, for grandmothers--and even grandfathers but especially for teenagers.
