2.0 out of 5 stars Not what you expect from an "Oxford Book of" Oct. 24 2006
By Mark DeBolt - Published on Amazon.com
I anticipated this book with eagerness, thinking now I would have much of the best classic Christmas poems in one volume, perhaps poems such as those by Traherne, Chatterton and Swinburne, as well as the better known poets. I was thoroughly disappointed. For Oxford University Press to publish it was ok, but they should have used a different title. Actually it did have some fine poems I was unfamiliar with, so it wasn't a total loss. Much of it seems geared for children or "family" reading. The illustrations support this idea. The selection leans heavily toward the contemporary. If this is what you want go for it, but don't make the mistake I did.

I first found this in the bookshop at the British Library. So many wonderful entries. I look forward to getting it out every year in the Christmas season and re-reading it. It sets the tone for the holiday. It makes a wonderful gift for a thoughtful reader.
