Review: The Faber Book of Beasts by Paul Muldoon (Editor)

The Faber Book Of Beasts - Paul Muldoon

A wonderful compilation of poetry including both old and new. The unifying theme is beasts, whether it is just a mention of a beast in a poem or a poem completely revolving around one, if it fits the criteria of Muldoon then he's included it. Another interesting aspect is that the poems are published alphabetically according to the type of beast featured. The collection includes poets such as Ted Hughes, D. H. Lawrence, Robert Browning, Emily Dickinson and many others.
