Good Poems for Hard Times

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Chosen by Garison Keillor for his readings on public radio's The Writer's Almanac, the 185 poems in this follow-up to his acclaimed anthology Good Poems are perfect for our troubled times.

Here, readers will find solace in works that are bracing and courageous, organized into such resonant headings as "Such As It Is More or Less" and "Let It Spill." From William Shakespeare and Walt Whitman to R. S. Gwynn and Jennifer Michael Hecht, the voices gathered in this collection will be more than welcome to those who've been struck by bad news, who are burdened by stress, or who simply appreciate the power of good poetry.

Good Poems for Bad Times

This is a very good anthology. I especially enjoy Billy Collins.
If you like poetry, and are at least an occasional reader of poetry, I recommend this book.
