Summary
Accounting for the great range of style and content with which poets such as W. H. Auden, Dylan Thomas, Federico Garcia Lorca, Rainer Maria Rilke, William Butler Yeats, Pablo Neruda, and Jorge Luis Borges responded to the changes and challenges of the twentieth century, 100 Great Poems of the Twentieth Century is intended as both a unique compendium for the already well-versed and an engaging introduction for those new to the expansive world of poetry. Allen Ginsberg's struggle-"What thoughts I have of you tonight, Walt Whitman... In my hungry fatigue, and shopping for images, I went into the neon fruit supermarket, dreaming of your enumerations!"-is echoed by other remarkable poets in this international collection of exciting and moving poems that are alike not in their length or for their status as seminal texts but because they are impossible to forget
