I originally snagged this from my father who was ready to cart it off to the used bookstore - he'd used it when teaching high school decades ago. I had this idea that I'd make some book art out of it, because I was certain there'd be nothing in it that would appeal to me. But of course I decided to read it before getting out the scissors, and that's when I discovered the short story Two Bottles of Relish by target="_top">Lord Dunsany. I'm not a huge fan of Dunsany, but nothing else I've read of his reads quite like this one. And it's apparently a bit hard to track down (not the play, that seems to be all over the place). So now I must hang on to the book.

Somehow I'm not terribly upset.… (mere)

The poems themselves in this book are great. I love poetry. But the author of the book is so freaking annoying and so freaking pretentious. I can't stand it.

A marvelous anthology, both in its selection and organization of stories and in its interpretive questions. As a teacher of a basic literature course, I've often used the introductory section as a way of demonstration the difference between what Perrine calls "escape literature" and "interpretive literature."
