Can you name some poets whose lines have inspired book titles?

January 28, 2014 § 3 Comments

Late Sunday night/Monday morning on Twitter, I was quoting lines from several poems by William Butler Yeats, when it occurred to me that lines from “Easter 1916” (a terrible beauty is born); “The Second Coming” (things fall apart; the centre cannot hold); and “Sailing to Byzantium” (That is no country for old men) have inspired several memorable book titles.

I found myself musing tonight on my drive back home from work on what other poems have inspired book titles.  If you can think of a poet, ancient or modern does not matter, whose lines provided titles for books, would you please list them below?  It’d be interesting to see what titles we recall collectively after this.
