Top Customer Reviews
Felleman put the poems in categories thematically. These are the broad themes of the book:
+ Love and Friendship
+ Poems that Tell a Story
+ Faith and Reverence
+ Home and Mother
+ Childhood and Youth
+ Patriotism and War
+ Humor and Whimsey
+ Memory and Grief
+ Various Themes
There are a lot of poems here with Unknown listed for the author, verses rather famous but either not attributed to any particular person, or attributed to too many people, the true origin of which could not be verified.
These are not all American poets. These are poems that Americans love, so naturally there are many poets from the British side, and various poems from other languages that have been translated into English. Wordsworth, Byron, Arnold, Tennyson, Burns and Kipling figure prominently.Read more ›
