5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT ANTHOLOGY!!!, 19 Jan. 2011
By 
This review is from: 100 Best-Loved Poems (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
This is indeed an anthology of 100 best - loved poems! We all have favorite poems and an anthology can sometimes be a bit disappointing, not because it does not include great poems, but because we don't all agree which poems are the best of each poet's work. Luckily, in this anthology I was fortunate to find some of my favorite poems.

The collection includes poems by the most famous, but also by lesser known poets and thus it provides a good understanding of the poetry genre and the way it has evolved from the middle ages to the 20th century. The poets are arranged chronologically and the anthology includes one or more poems by each poet, representative of his work and time. Also, there is a brief introduction for each poet, which provides basic information about each poet's time and work.

This great anthology includes poems by Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, John Donne, John Milton, William Blake, Leigh Hunt, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Edgar Allan Poe, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Cristina Rossetti, Lewis Carroll, Robert Louis Stevenson, W. B. Yeats, Edna St. Vincent Millay, W. H. Auden and Dylan Thomas, to name just a few. In addition this little book includes an Alphabetical List of Titles and an Alphabetical List of First Lines.

In total, a great anthology for anyone interested in English poetry and at an excellent price!
