The New Oxford Book of English Verse, 1250-1950 (Oxford Books of Verse)by Helen Gardner
Synopses & Reviews
New edition of this single-volume anthology of English verse. It includes one hundred poets and nine hundred poems from seven centuries.
Seven centuries of verse, from 1250 to 1950. Dame Helen Gardner reflects the critical consensus of the day in broadening her choices beyond those of Quiller-Couch's lyrical tastes. The anthology balances poems dealing with public events and historic occasions, poems of private life, and religious, moral.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 946-953) and indexes.
