"Good Poems for Hard Times" by Garrison Keillor
Chosen by Garrison Keillor for his readings on public radio's The Writer's Almanac, the 185 poems in this follow-up to his acclaimed anthology Good Poems are perfect for our troubled times.
I have found a bit of peace and solace this wonderful book of poems that are bracing and courageous. From William Shakespeare and Walt Whitman to R. S. Gwynn and Jennifer Michael Hecht, the voices gathered in this collection will be more than welcome to those who who simply appreciate the power of good poetry.
