Product Description

Truly a classic, The Best Loved Poems of the American People contains over 575 traditional favorites to be read and reread. Categorized by theme, and indexed by author and first line, this is a collection that will be treasured by the young and not-so-young alike.
Relive the excitement and ultimate heartbreak of Earnest Lawrence Thayer's "Casey at the Bat," and the two less-known follow-up poems, "Casey's Revenge" and "Casey - Twenty Years Later." Enjoy, too, the history that is brought to life in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's "Paul Revere's Ride" and Alfred Tennyson's "The Charge of the Light Brigade."
Other contributors range from acknowledged literary giants like Rudyard Kipling, Robert Browning, Emily Bronte, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning to less familiar creators of popular pieces like "Home, Sweet Home," "The Old Oaken Bucket," and "In Flanders Fields."
These are the poems that have delighted generations, and will warm our hearts forever. Whether they are read aloud, or quietly alone, the selections in this book will be cherished for years to come. It is a must for every poetry lover, as well as every family reference library.
