Not marble nor the gilded monuments
Of princes shall outlive this powerful rhyme
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time.
--From Sonnet 55

For students, this is the perfect little book to use for studying, while devotees of poetry will want it right on the night table, there to enjoy at any time. To make finding a favorite poem easier, there's an index of first lines.
