Edward Hirsch began writing a column called "Poet's Choice" in the Washington Post Book World in 2002. This book brings together those enormously popular columns, some of which have been revised and expanded, to present a minicourse in world poetry. Poet's Choice includes the work of more than one hundred poets from ancient times to the present-among them Sappho, W.B.Yeats, Czeslaw Milosz, Primo Levi, Robert Frost, Pablo Neruda, Amy Lowell, Mark Strand, and many more-and shares them with all of Hirsch's inimitable enthusiasm and joy. Rich, relevant, and inviting, the book offers us the fruits of a life lived in poetry.
