Product Description


"Smyth provides an extremely useful overview of the kinds of works deployed in these anthologies, the ways in which their contents evolved decade by decade, what kinds of readership they were designed to serve, and with what strategies the books approached their audience. His knowledge of manuscript anthologies, essential to a full understanding of their printed counterparts, is more than adequate for the task."
