Read full description of the books:
This collection has a lot of very good poems. However, I do feel conflicted when such a book tries to "reflect every facet of life... for all ages." The fact that it's so lavishly illustrated really makes it seem like a kids' book, but if that's the case, then some of the poems just don't fit very well (e.g. Donne's "Death Be Not Proud" and Milton's "On His Blindness," to name just two). I don't advocate hard lines between poetry "for adults" and "for kids"—lots of crossovers I think are great—but not everything works.
The illustrations are fantastic... aside from the people, which can look a little weird. But otherwise I quite like the style. There are at least a couple typos that I caught in the poems themselves, including one pretty egregious one that just changed the whole meaning of the end of an excellent poem.
