In spite of the fact that it's sometimes thought of as a "low" sport, boxing has made converts of a surprisingly mixed crowd of commentators, including ancient philosophers, well-known reporters, famous novelists, and even poets. The Total Sports Illustrated Book of Boxing brings together the most memorable writings on the "sweet science, " featuring a varied mix of fiction, reporting, biography, and poetry, set off by a section of color photos. This anthology runs the gamut of boxing lore, chronicling the ancient sport through the works of such diverse writers as Nellie Bly, Ernest Hemingway, Rocky Marciano, Joyce Carol Oates, Plato, Ring Lardner, Virgil, and dozens of others.
