Countries to Books
Published on Friday, April 18, 2014 - 10:23am
I am back again! And this time, I have only one book to report; however, it includes an innumerable amount of authors from various countries in the world. The book is titled The Vintage Book of Contemporary World Poetry and it was edited by J.D. McClatchy. It includes famous poets such as:
The book is almost organized by continents, beginning with Europe, The Middle East, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
It is perfect to read casually, skimming sections and lazily discovering new poets. Before each poet's work, there is a succinct biography about the writer. I appreciated this, since the majority of the authors were poets I had never been exposed to. What a perfect read for April, which is National Poetry Month.
Check it out, and let me know your thoughts! Also, I am still open for reading suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
