The Penguin book of English verse

by P. J. Keegan


This is an anthology of English verse. Poems are ordered by date of composition rather than in monolithic slabs devoted to individual poets. It also includes a high proportion of anonymous poetry and written on surfaces other than paper. The entire poetic tradition, from epitaphs to ballads, folk poetry to nonsense verse, is revealed in a fresh light.
