Poems That Make Grown Men Cry: 100 Men on the Words That Move ThemPoems That Make Grown Men Cry: 100 Men on the Words That Move Them by Anthony Holden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


An anthology of poems compiled by asking men - celebrities, writers, actors, critics, and others - what poems have made them cry. Many of them choose male poets, but there are many written by women as well. There are also some obvious choices - Whitman, Auden, Larkin - as well as some beautiful lesser known poems. As with any anthology, it's inconsistent in quality, but thematically it is often consistent - lots of poems about lost loved ones, the horrors of war, aging, death. Overall, a good collection.
