"The Art of Poetry"

Singing School

W.W. Norton & Co. 

"Singing School is nothing like the usual anthology of safe and sane selections. Instead, it is a gathering of poetry designed to stimulate the young and startle the old practitioner, with a surprise around every corner. Where else might you find Sterling Brown's 'Harlem Happiness' next to Queen Elizabeth I's 'When I Was Fair and Young,' and two poems away from Plath's 'Nick and the Candlestick'? . . .  A book that will instruct and charm every reader."
