Now with touch screen navigation for Kindle Fire and iPad. For students and poetry lovers old and new, Immortal Poets offers a deep selection from the works of the greatest English and American poets, along with brief biographies of each one and a portrait of the times they lived in. There are fascinating people behind the great poems. In this new anthology, and Christopher Burns has brought them to life. Equal to more than a thousand pages in print, the book includes 547 poems and 120 poets from Beowulf to Robert Frost. About 200 of the poems appear in The Seashell Anthology and in The Norton Anthology—they are the classics. But Immortal Poets goes deeper: Shakespeare (27), Dickinson (21), Millay (16), Whitman (15), Sandburg (14), and Frost (13). It also includes the full text of such long works as “The Waste Land,” ”Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” “Evangeline,” and “The Raven,” as well as generous excerpts from “Beowulf”, Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales”, Whitman’s “Song of Myself”, and FitzGerald’s “Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam”.

The stories behind the poems are wonderful: John Wilmot had John Dryden beaten up in an alley by thugs, Alexander Pope traveled with a Great Dane and two loaded pistols to protect himself from critics he had insulted. Dante Rossetti hired men to open his wife’s grave after six years and retrieve his collection of unpublished poems. On his seventieth birthday, John Greenleaf Whittier had a few of his friends over for dinner: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Mark Twain. Many of the great poets died poor, eight committed suicide, Tichborne was drawn and quartered at eighteen, Marlowe died in a barroom brawl, and Raleigh was beheaded. But many others lived long and colorful lives: three won the Nobel Prize for Literature; Robert Service, who wrote “The Cremation of Sam Magee”, made a million dollars from his poetry and died on the French Riviera at eighty-four.

Available only as an ebook, the anthology is deeply indexed by author, title and period, with a navigation bar at the top of every page. Short illustrated biographies are included for each poet, as well as descriptions of each group, from the Elizabethans to the Moderninsts.

Poets represented by four poems or more include: William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, John Donne, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Walt Whitman, Carl Sandburg, Robert Frost, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Butler Yeats, Robert Browning, William Blake, William Wordsworth, Robert Burns, Alfred Tennyson, A. E. Housman, William Carlos Williams, Percy Bysshe Shelly, Thomas Hardy, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Laurence Hope, Charlotte Mew, Thomas Campion, D. H. Lawrence, Wilfred Owen, Langston Hughes, Edwin Arlington Robinson, Robert Herrick, John Keats, Matthew Arnold, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edgar Allen Poe, Ernest Dowson, Walter de la Mare, John Masefield, Anna Wickham, Sara Teasdale, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, e. e. cummings, George Herbert, Ben Jonson, John Wilmot, Alexander Pope, William Cowper, Lord Byron, Christina Rossetti, Arthur Symons, Claude McKay, Helene Johnson, Amy Lowell, Elinor Wylie, Wallace Stevens, and Archibald MacLeish.

Christopher Burns is a long-time media executive and editor of The Seashell Anthology of Great Poetry, the best-selling poetry book on Kindle.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Portable and Personal Book of Great Poetry by Christopher Burns 7 de octubre de 2011
Por Amazon Customer - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
Christopher Burns has produced the best poetry collection in a portable and personal eBook format. By including background information about each poet's motivation and development, he offers the reader new insights concerning poetic creativity.

The poems are organized according to significant periods in the history of poetry from the Pre-Elizabethans to the Modernists. The Introduction is well-written and informative - it discusses how the book is organized, why the study of each poet's background leads to a better understanding of their poetry, and presents three characteristics of great poets. Burns analyzes some important environmental factors in the development of the immortal poets. In addition, he has a fascinating discussion of certain indicators related to early giftedness (e.g., excitabilities) that might be precursors to the poetic imagination.

Carry this eBook around with you. Read it for insights and constant inspiration. You can't go wrong by purchasing Immortal Poets!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Excellent Anthology 14 de abril de 2014
Por Leonard L. Wilson - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
This is an excellent anthology of great poems. The range of selections is especially good; not all are very well known classics, and it is a pleasure to discover some new works that are well worthy of inclusion. Burns's biographical notes and other comments are most interesting, and his judgments on poetry are uniformly astute and knowledgable. Naturally, in such a very large collection, not every poem is something that I would consider worthwhile, but I definitely would not expect, or even desire, that. I own quite a number of poetry anthologies, but I think that this is probably the best of them.

It's impossible to assemble an anthology of poetry that will please everyone. However, this anthology goes a long way in that direction. I majored in English in college and developed a love for poetry, and as I read many of the same poems again at 80 years of age I recall how little I knew of life then. I'm so happy I bought this book and was able to reread "Lines composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey", "I wandered lonely as a cloud", and "The world is too much with us", by William Wordsworth. It's as if several centuries of the production of the greatest minds to employ the English are found in this book. Thank you Mr. Burns.

The best poetry collection in my modest collection (100 or so books). A little bit about the period and then a sampling of poets and a sampling of their poems.
I read to my new lady friend by way of showing my sensitive side.
