The Golden Treasury - Of the best Songs and Lyrical Pieces In the English Language - Selected by Francis Turner Palgrave - The Golden Treasury of English Songs and Lyrics is a popular anthology of English poetry, originally selected for publication by Francis Turner Palgrave in 1861. It was considerably revised, with input from Tennyson, about three decades later. Palgrave excluded all poems by poets then still alive. Francis Turner Palgrave (28 September 1824 - 24 October 1897) was a British critic, anthologist and poet. Palgrave published both criticism and poetry, but his work as a critic was by far the more important. His Visions of England (1880-1881) has dignity and lucidity, but little of the "natural magic" which the greatest of his predecessors in the Oxford chair considered rightly to be the test of inspiration. His last volume of poetry, Amenophis, appeared in 1892. His criticism is considered to demonstrate fine and sensitive tact, quick intuitive perception, and generally sound judgment. His Handbook to the Fine Arts Collection, International Exhibition, 1862, and his Essays on Art (1866), though flawed, were full of striking judgments strikingly expressed.
