For a bit of fun, a tongue-in-cheek romantic book spine poem, inspired by everyone’s favorite Austen hero:
Sailing Alone Around the Room: New and Selected Poems by Billy Collins
Dancing with Mr. Darcy: Stories Inspired by Jane Austen and Chawton House compiled by Sarah Waters
Lips Together, Teeth Apart by Terrence McNally
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Excuse the recycled Great Expectations! My student copy that I’ve had forever. For more book spine poetry, volume one can be found here. And for more on the original book spine poetess, visit Nina Katchadourian’s Sorted Books Project.
