UK Kirkus Review » A fascinating document in popular taste (readers voted for their 100 best-loved poems), this is a fine and thoughtfully produced reading edition, with many genuinely profound and numinous poems nestling among the stirringly rhythmic and the mawkishly sentimental. A poem like John Masefield's 'Cargoes', or Byron's 'She Walks in Beauty', gains from being placed in a value-free perspective - knowing merely that a piece is popular, we can make up our own minds, with no scholarly claim or context to influence us, whether it earns its keep in our consciousness. Highly recommended. (Kirkus UK)
