Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victorian Poetry: An Annotated Anthology (Blackwell Annotated Anthology) (Blackwell Annotated Anthologies) (Paperback)
I don't usually read much poetry but in the Victorian era so much art is related to it e.g. Tennyson,Morris etc that I decided to get this book.I found it a very good buy.The annotations were very useful in helping to get the full meaning of the poems. The introductions to the poems however sometimes lapsed into floweriness of language and made points which I found unconvincing.That aside I believe it merited the four stars I gave it and I may well buy the book on the Romantics which precedes it in the series.
