A new addition to David Madden's POCKETFUL series (including titles in fiction, poetry, drama, and the essay), this slim volume includes over 100 of the most familiar and most taught poems, arranged alphabetically. Priced to be affordably packaged with two or even three other volumes, each book in the POCKETFUL series can also be used separately.This text will range from classic, traditional poems mixed with contemporary poets such as Pinsky, Erdich, and Justice. Two annotated poems in the beginning of the book, one by Robert Frost and one a response by Madden, cover the major elements of poetry, giving examples of how to annotate a poem and what to look for in reading a poem. This text is intended to be an inexpensive alternative to the more expensive anthologies.
