[Signed] Kennedy, Caroline. The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Fourth Printing. 2001. Book and dust jacket are both in very good condition. It is signed “Caroline Kennedy” on the title page.
One reason Jacqueline Onassis loved literature and poetry was because “once you can express yourself, you can tell the world what you want from it.” It was a love that Onassis instilled in her daughter from an early age. In this book, Caroline Kennedy collects her mother’s favorite poems, including works by William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, E.E. Cummings, Hillaire Belloc, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Robert Frost, and others. There is also commentary by Caroline Kennedy, family photographs, and a few original works by Onassis herself.
“Read for escape, read for adventure, read for romance, but read the great writers.”
--Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
