    "Gregory E. Foster" I searched long and hard for this little volume for a couple of years always to no avail. Finally, I was lucky enough to obtain this copy. This was Teddy Roosevelt's favorite book of verse, which led me to the search for it, as I wanted to see first hand what the Great Man liked best. You know what? It is exactly fitting and in keeping with one's love and respect for one of the greatest Americans that ever lived. And he was, indeed, a great big teddy bear. A man of enormous strength physically and also morally/spiritually, a towering figure in the history of humankind, yet a soft and gentle and kindly man whom I would think it impossible not to love as a private individual, and as a towering leader at the beginning of the century. So, I acquired this small volume, and placed it on my library shelves until the time seemed "right" to look into it. What a relevation, and quite personal "peek" into the (for lack of another term to... More > quickly come to mind) "heart" of this great man. These little jewels are simply exquisite and so touching and warmly humanistic. One surprise is the poem that Simon & Garfunkel turned into the song "Richard Cory" on their "Sounds of Silence" album. Wonderful stuff in this little book--and also somehow an enlightening insight to the Great Man's heart. I think you'll be very pleased with this delightful little volume that sadly is, I guess, pretty much totally unknown. This wonderful collection of Edwin Arlington Robinson's works deservedly needs to be brought out into the light and enjoyed by modern readers. Trust me, it is SO worth the search to locate and acquire a copy of this marvelous book. ~operabruin< Less
