4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Anthology, November 4, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Three Centuries of American Poetry (Paperback)
This is a great anthology of American poetry, containing a very good selection of poems from both major poets and less well known ones. It's a pleasure reading both poets I know and those I'm unfamiliar with.

So, why four stars instead of five? It's based on a design choice in the book. The book does not have running page heads. This might not matter in a novel (though I can't think of any novels that I own that don't have running heads), but is very annoying in an anthology -- especially a poetry anthology. Like most people, I don't read poetry anthologies from start to finish. Instead, I pick it up and flip through it. But with this book, you open to an unfamiliar poem and want to know who the poet is. Look to the running head -- but there is no running head. So you have to start paging back, until you come to the name of the poet. Annoying.

But otherwise, I'd heartily recommend this book.
