One Question at a Time: #2

What's the book, music (in whatever form you choose) or movie you'd want to have with you should you ever wind up on that infamous deserted island?

I'd want to take an anthology of poetry. My grandmother gave me one when I was a child that I wished I still had today. I like the idea of an anthology because no one poet would offer enough diversity for me. But a collection from many writers . . . it would be like having a different conversation every day. And when I re-read a poem I know I'd have the exact same sense I have when re-reading now . . . almost as if I've never read it before because in the moment something new strikes me.
