Here is a blurb I copied from an Amazon review:
This collection reminds me of Harry Smith's Folkways Anthology of Folk Music... each individual piece is valid in its own way, but the collection adds up to more than the sum of its parts. On the other side: the editors chose to present the poems in order, sorted alphabetically by title, which tends to minimize any sense of editorializing.

I say who ever gets the book first can post away. I think we should take them in the order they are presented in the book. I think it would be very helpful if someone posted the whole list of poems. I will see if there is a way to have this thread set up more like chapter book thread. If no one else wants to type the list of poems, I will happily do it when my book arrives.

Guess what? I found part of the Table of Contents M-Z. A weird place to start, but okay. This will give us a sense of what we are getting ourselves into. I also know that it is 496 pages. That sounds like it mean almost another 500 poems. ARE YOU READY?

Edit: First you will notice that I have added A-L to the list. Also, I have rearranged the thread, so that as we post comments about the poems the tread remains manageable. I will make a post after this list with guidelines for how this discussion will go; just to keep us altogether and somewhat organized.

So here we have a Top 466! These look great to me. What's the plan to be, have a rotation where each of us posts the poems with the same initial letter, and then it moves to the next person in the rotation? (I am assuming that the poems can be copied online.)

That is a brilliant idea, we each pick a letter! Now who would like to begin with the A's, Penny?

I was thinking that we'd go along as we did with the Top 500. I'd say posting about a poem ever day or so would be about the right pace. As you post poems try to be sensitive to how the flow is going, if a poem is being hotly discussed, hold off on posting a new poem. How does that sound?

Sounds great. I'll continue with the A's until those who have a copy of the book coming get their own copy. All of the poems might not be available to copy and paste from the internet, so I'm hoping that those ones are short. :D

One of us can type them up though, if they can't be found.

I'm sorry if it seems a bit daunting....but some of the poems, we have covered already in the top 500, so it won't be so long. Anyway, we are just getting into the swing of stop moaning! :twisted:

Thanks, Penny! Now, when you post look for the thread that says, "The Rattle Bag: The A Poems."
