Good Lord do I hate Walt Whitman. The other reviewer of this volume has been brainwashed. He believes Whitman is any good (let alone the best thing in the volume) because he's been told to believe it. Whitman is trash. Whitman didn't write poetry. Whitman is the worst thing to ever happen to American poetry. Imagine worshipping Whitman and denigrating Longfellow -- Longfellow!

I came to this book in a round-about way looking for more info about Edwin Arlington Robinson after confusing him with Edgar Lee Masters. This was one of the few books that carried his work. The collection of poems found here are clever and sharp, mostly highlighting the 20th century. The usual suspects appear: Dorothy Parker, Ogden Nash, Kenneth Koch whose riffs on William Carlos Williams are hilarious. But there are also a few from Robert Frost, E.B. White and W.H. Auden who seem less playful in the works I've read prior to this. The fun part of this is that many of the poems and poets skewer each other and famous people of the time. Cultural and literary references abound showing the writers to have a good pulse on their generation.… (mais)
