"[The editors'] collaboration resulted in a book with a remarkable group of poets across the ages, from Emily Dickinson to Charles Bukowski, from Catullus to Bob Dylan. . . . These are poems focusing on concerns of the heart—fathers and sons, love and hurt, peace and war, anger, denial and zaniness." — Seattle Post

Robert Bly, James Hillman, and Michael Meade challenge the assumptions of our poetry–deprived society in this powerful collection of more than 400 deeply moving poems from renowned artists including Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Theodore Roethke, Rainer Maria Rilke, Marianne Moore, Thomas Wolfe, Czeslaw Milosz, Henry David Thoreau, Pablo Neruda, and Nikki Giovanni.
