Summary

"The Oxford Book of English Verse, created in 1900 by Arthur Quiller-Couch and selected anew in 1972 by Helen Gardner, has established itself as the foremost anthology of English poetry: ample in span, liberal in the kinds of poetry presented. This completely fresh selection brings in new poems and poets from all ages, and extends the range by another half-century, to include many twentieth-century figures not featured before - among them Philip Larkin and Samuel Beckett, Thom Gunn and Elaine Feinstein - right up to Ted Hughes and Seamus Heaney."--BOOK JACKET.
