Various Authors: One Hundred and One Famous Poems. 12 Feb 2009

One Hundred and One Famous Poems (with a Prose Supplement), published by R. J. Cook.

This popular anthology was first published in 1916. "Eighty Years of Bestsellers (1895-1975)" by Hackett and Burke ranks it among the fifty most popular books sold in the U.S. in the past century. One Hundred and One Famous Poems (or alternatively, 101 Famous Poems) has remained continuously in print.

It includes works from great poets like Byron, Dickinson, Keats, Milton, Shakespeare, Shelley, Tennyson, Whitman, and Wordsworth. There are also popular poems by Frost, Kipling, Longfellow, Poe, Riley, and Whittier.
And those lesser poems that we often memorized as a child.

You may not recognize the title and author of some but you will remember the poems or frequently quoted phrases.
Laugh and the world laughs with you...
But let me live by the side of the road and be a friend of man...
We shall not sleep though poppies grow in Flanders Field...
a poem as lovely as a tree...
I am the captain of my soul...
Will you walk into my parlor?, said the spider to the fly...
And fired the shot heard round the world...
I shall not pass this way again...

I've tried to keep the structure of the poems, which is probably best appreciated in a small or medium font.

The TOC seems to cut off after about one third of the entries.
