Synopsis

This selection of poems from across the ages brings to life a staggering array of

zombies, ghosts, vampires, and devils. Our culture's current obsession with zombies

and vampires is only the latest form of a fascination with crossing the boundary between

the living and the dead that has haunted humans since we first began writing. The poetic

evidence gathered here ranges from ancient Egyptian inscriptions and the

Mesopotamian epic Gilgamesh to the Greek bard Homer, and from Shakespeare and

Milton and Keats to Emily Dickinson and Edgar Allan Poe. Here too are terrifying

apparitions from a host of more recent poets, from T. S. Eliot and Sylvia Plath to Rita

Dove and Billy Collins, from Allen Ginsberg and H. P. Lovecraft to Mick Jagger and Shel

Silverstein. The result is a delightfully entertaining volume of spine-tingling poems for

fans of horror and poetry both
