National Poetry Month Featured Book 4: The Rattle Bag, ed. by Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes

I would recommend this anthology to anyone over age 12 who wants to write (or simply read) great poetry. Heaney and Hughes make some surprising choices that might not suit every taste, but the poems range across multiple centuries and aesthetics. Its companion book, The School Bag, is also excellent.

P.S. Two great links that came my way today:
