Palgrave's intention in compiling his anthology in the 1860s was to collect the finest lyrical poems in the English Language; the measure of his success is the great critical acclaim his volume won, and the fact that his name is still synonymous for many with English verse.This new edition of the anthology is the first for 30 years, and provides an excellent map of the changing landscape of English verse. It remains true to the spirit of the `original' Palgrave, and is here presented in fine-binding as the perfect gift purchase. There are many classic poets to befound here: Blake, Tennyson, Hardy, Yeats, and Hopkins among them. This new edition includes poems from the last 30 years, along with all of the material from previous editions. Fleur Adcock, Douglas Dunn, Gavin Ewart, Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Jennings, Derek Mahon, Sylvia Plath, Peter Porter, AnneStevenson, and Hugo Williams are among the many names to appear in this marvellous book for the first time.
