5.0 out of 5 stars Great Poetry Series, 2 Mar 2011
It is good to know that volumes in this series are possible to find via Amazon - this volume with possibly Britain's most successful Surrealist poet [Gascoyne] and two other remarkable poets was first published in 1970 and remains of enormous interest to the student and/or practitioner and/or lover of C20 verse. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect of Its Kind, 3 Oct 2010
This anthology, concentrating on a decent selection of poems from six of the best C19 French poets [including Baudelaire, Rimbaud and Mallarme] has it all over those that take a wider view but may only tantalise. For a more in-depth overview of the peaks of French C19 verse this is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS ANTHOLOGY, 14 Jan 2010
Anyone interested in poetry in any form should enjoy this anthology. As the title suggests, it consists of poems all less than 14 lines in length [this limit is deliberately designed to exclude Sonnets, which as the editor explain would probably tend to dominate and which are in any case well anthologised elsewhere already]. There are exciting discoveries on every page, and the chronological arrangement is logical and consistent. Ten out of ten.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, 1 Dec 2009
This is one of the most imaginative and stimulating poetry anthologies available at the moment: the organisation of the poems selected is intriguing [and you'll have to buy a copy to find out about that] - the range of poems is splendid, with a well-nigh perfect balance struck between the conflicting claims of familiarity and freshness, tradition and contemporaraneity. Forty-two out of ten [just to annoy purist mathematicians, who might benefit quite a lot from this book, anyway].
