2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Joolz on 4 Oct 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With the exception of having four words removed from the title (The Faber Book of...), this is an unrevised, un-supplemented, un-re-prefaced reprint of the 1993 paperback edition of the 1992 The Faber Book of...etc. To protect the prospective buyer, why not keep the title? To increase the deception, this book does not have 480 pages as indicated on this Amazon page, but exactly the same number as the 1993 paperback version. The latter currently sells for 1p on Amazon, and is therefore a better buy. It is, or rather, was, a great anthology. But this is bad publishing.

Format: Paperback
My review will be no more helpful than the above. The point of rating a book is not to grind your axe about the publishers and rebranding but to rate what is inside, what is chosen or written; whether Dunn has edited an anthology worthy of the name, the choice of poets and poems and the core of understanding in his subject matter is what makes the book, irrespective of who published it, when they published it or even why.

Douglas Dunn succeeded although whether you buy this book or The Faber is no one's choice but yours.
