Popular Disinformation author, Russ Kick, is known for his quirky, ingenious and surprisingly useful collections. He's done it again. This is the most comprehensive, not to mention the first, anthology of death poetry ever published in the English language and is ultimately life affirming. DEATH POEMS is an unprecedented, vast survey of death in poetry that cuts across time, world cultures and languages. DEATH POEMS covers a range of subjects, from the death of children, lost loves and funeral rites, to serial killers, 9/11, the death penalty, roadkill, war, the Underworld, reincarnation and elegies to famous people. Included are the famous poems "death poetry's greatest hits" that have to be included: "Because I Could Not Stop for Death" by Dickinson, "To an Athlete Dying Young" by Housman, "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night" by Thomas, "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" by Wilde, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd" by Whitman, "Adonais" by Shelley and a bunch more.
