About the Author:

Dame Helen Gardner was Emeritus Professor of English Literature at the University of Oxford, a distinguished scholar and author of books including The Metaphysical Poets, In Defence of the Imagination, and The Art of T. S. Eliot.

Review:

`If one had to say where can you find in fewer than 1,000 pages the best of English poetry, here it is. Daily Telegraph

`by far the most balanced and most wide-ranging [anthology] we have, offering superlative value to almost every taste' The Times

`Dame Helen has seen through this enormous task with affection, wit and wonderful thoroughness.' Times Literary Supplement

`Her knowledge of English poetry is both extensive and intensive; her critical standards are eminently worthy of respect...The reading public has every reason to be grateful to her.' Critical Quarterly

`The book remains a continuous and rewarding pleasure...It is a cause of wonder how easily poems of the recent past fit with those written centuries ago without jarring or disturbance.' New York Times

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1972. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The New Oxford Book of English Verse is now firmly established as a classic anthology of English poetry. Chosen by the distinguished scholar and critic, Dame Helen Gardner, the book makes available in one volume the full range and variety of English non-dramatic verse. Dame Helen Gardner reflected the critical consensus of the day in broadening her choices beyond those of Quiller-Couch s lyrical tastes, and the anthology balances poems that deal with public events and historic occasions with poems of private life, and religious, moral or political verse with satire and light verse. All the major poets are fully represented, and there are also superb works by lesser known poets, and many surprises among the favourites. Seller Inventory # AOP9780198121367
