Poetry 180

Has anyone read Billy Collins’ poetry 180: a turning back to poetry?

It’s a collection of accessible poetry that he compiled while he was poet laureate with everyone from C.S. Lewis to Jane Yolen to Richard Brautigan.  This is a version of the 180 Library of Congress website (www. loc.gov/poetry/180.)  The purpose was to assemble “a generous collection of short, clear, contemporary poems.  Enjoy!
