good books

Google Books is a good thing. I came across a reference to an anthology of poetry in a newspaper article today, and I wanted to track down the book. It’s an old anthology, published in 1917 or thereabouts. It does look like I could get a used copy on Amazon, but it’s old enough that I can download it in PDF format from Google. Their copy seems to have come from Harvard’s library, and looks to be pretty well beat up, which is kind of cool. This book includes one of my favorite poems, “Mending Wall” by Robert Frost: “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall…”
