Former U.S. poet laureate Robert Pinsky (Jersey Rain) founded the Favorite Poem Project during his tenure, resulting in an anthology (Americans' Favorite Poems) and other disseminations. Again with Project director Maggie Dietz, Pinsky follows up with another collection of poems selected by readers across the country. Poems to Read: A New Favorite Poem Project Anthology features works by a wide selection of well-known, mostly American and European writers from throughout the ages: Henry King, Rabindranath Tagore, Gwendolyn Brooks, J.W. von Goethe, Issa, Jorie Graham, Robert Herrick, Dionisio Mart!nez and Frank O'Hara are just a few of them. Arranged in quote-based categories like ""I Made My Song a Coat"" and ""In Durance Soundly Caged,"" most pieces are preceded by brief comments from Poem Project participants engineers, doctors, consultants, police officers, human resource managers, high school students and others who share what the poems mean to them.
