We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
Accounting for the great range of style and content with which poets such as W. H. Auden, Dylan Thomas, Federico Garc#65533;a Lorca, Rainer Maria Rilke, William Butler Yeats, Pablo Neruda, and Jorge Luis Borges responded to the changes and challenges of the twentieth century, 100 Great Poems of the Twentieth Century is intended as both a unique compendium for the already well-versed and as an engaging introduction for those new to the expansive world of poetry. Alan Ginsberg's struggle--"What thoughts I have of you tonight, Walt Whitman....In my hungry fatigue, and shopping for images, I went into the neon fruit supermarket, dreaming of your enumerations!"--is echoed by other remarkable poets in this international collection of exciting and moving poems that are alike not in their length or for their status as seminal texts but because they are impossible to forget.
