A review of Lifesaving Poems


  1. john foggin

    She’s absolutely right. Two things especially: there’s an aphoristic ring to the idea that you can’t read a poem once. I had to go back and re-read that. The other thing is about teaching. Every time I read one of your choices I’m surprised by a name I don’t know or only vaguely know. Who else does that?The Sansoms. I’m trying to remember the American writer on the teaching of reading….one of the Real Books gurus. He had a mantra, anyway. I guess that’s de rigeur for a guru. “You learn from the company you keep”. Great company, Maria Taylor and Anthony Wilson.
