    By the time I read this book, I was pretty irritated, for a variety of reasons The main source of irritation was that I had just read for the third time in the course of a couple of days the same collection of poems by someone who is considered a great poet, all of which were given different titles If someone wants to be considered as a great poet, it should not be possible that their earliest poems also be their selected poems or their best poems, not when those poems don t happen to be ver By the time I read this book, I was pretty irritated, for a variety of reasons The main source of irritation was that I had just read for the third time in the course of a couple of days the same collection of poems by someone who is considered a great poet, all of which were given different titles If someone wants to be considered as a great poet, it should not be possible...
