About the collection, Rosanna Warren writes: "The Poetry Calendar is rich in surprises, non sequiturs, occult associations across centuries. Most of all, it is guided by an eclectic but uncompromising sense of excellence. It is a pleasure to turn each page and to see what the next day brings in the paced contemplative exercise of the new poem.
Make a resolution to read a poem every day with this beautiful desktop anthology.
