NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)
Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Coming To My Home Today . . . More Poetry!
After reading How To Read A Poem and Fall In Love With Poetry, it became clear to me that I need some serious assistance with poetry. I have a couple of books that will get me started, but I wanted something else I could pick away at that was more specific than just "poetry". That is a broad topic! I did a little research and here is what I found, Victorian Poetry: An Annotated Anthology.
This book is part of a series of annotated poetry anthologies. I chose this one because I know I like the poetry of Christina Rossetti and her work is included here. It looks like there is biographical information included for each poet and extra information about each poem. Also, there is a section in the Table of Contents that groups the poems by subject in the event a person chose to engage in a topical study of the poems in the book. I'm really excited about this volume, and if it turns out to be as great as it looks I may have to pick up other volumes in this series. I'll keep you posted!
On a side note, as I was researching the direction I wanted to go in with this I have discovered that I seem to have a liking for Victorian Literature in general. I see a potential Knowledge Block forming! :-)
