This is a fascinating glimpse into poetry's past at the turn of the twentieth century. The manner in which Wilkinson questions, critiques, and reviews poetry is passionate, honest, and interesting for the poet wanting an understanding of how past poetry was viewed by peers in its prime. Many acclaimed poets are quoted, reviewed, and judged. The book provides great insight into the poetic sensibilities of the period. On a personal note, I found this book to be funny, well-written and full of rich language. This is a book worth any poet's time to read!
