Editorial Reviews

Review

"A good selection of poems....Excellent essay on meter." --Anne Goble, Clark University

"A nice anthology--nice enough for a time capsule" --August Franza, Dowling College

"A well-edited textbook. Should satisfy the needs of junior and senior classes. First rate annotations." --M. Raina, Rutgers University, Newark

"A rich collection of important English poems." --Carol F. Heffernan, Rutgers University

"I will certainly use it." --Richard F. Hardin, University of Kansas

"A well-chosen range of poems. The footnotes create no problems for the teacher, but solve problems for the students." --Reg Saner, University of Colorado, Boulder

"The most balanced and comprehensive single-volume anthology I have seen. An extremely valuable teaching tool." --Ashton Nichols, Auburn University

"An outstanding selection of poems, with useful annotations and an excellent chapter on versification." --Stuart Y. McDougal, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

"The first poetry anthology I have seen that seriously challenges the Norton Anthology....Its selection is good, its footnotes are useful definitions rather than intrusive interpretations, and its binding seems more durable than the Norton text." --R. Chris Hassel, Jr., Vanderbilt University

"Little is left out and much included. I liked the selection and the scholarly apparatus, and found especially helpful the section on versification by Professor Gall." --Edward J. Cronin, University of Notre Dame

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Annabel Ascher on May 30, 2006
This excellent collection spans from the Middle English ballads to the mid nineteen-eighties, though it is does cover the eighteenth, nineteenth, and first half of the twentieth century most thoroughly. It also is very well footnoted, and these notes helped me to gain a deeper understanding of some of my favorites. I bought it for The Second Coming by Yeats, September 1, 1939 by Auden, Ozymandias by Shelley and Dulce Et Decorum Est by Owens, and it contains all of these. But it also offers so much more. It is my intention to read a poem a day until I cover the whole book.

This includes just about all of the classics in the English canon, with annotations and brief introductions to each poet. An expensive item but worth it!
