A perfect alternative to massive poetry anthologies, this brief, affordable collection of over 250 poems provides a concise yet comprehensive introduction to the study of poetry.  Authors new to this collection, including Amy Gerstler (named by the Los Angeles Times as “one of the best poets in the nation”), and award winners Rebecca Foust and Craig Arnold, provide ample evidence that poetry continues to flourish in today’s world.  Young writers Ernest Hilbert and Erica Dawson bring poetry into the 21st century and provide inspiration for aspiring young poets.

From the Back Cover:

Compact yet complete—and always at a reasonable price!

For more than 60 years, instructors and their students have looked to Penguin trade paperbacks for state-of-the-art scholarship, accessibility, and fair prices. Longman, Penguin’s sister company, aims to meet those same expectations with textbooks in our series Penguin Academics.

We’ve created the Penguin Academics series with ease of use in mind—the books are conveniently portable and highly readable, with engaging typefaces and interior designs. Concise yet thorough in their coverage of the basics, Penguin Academics titles are ideal for use either by themselves or in combination with other books. A list of related Penguin paperbacks can be found at the back of this and every Penguin Academics title.

The ideal alternative to longer anthologies, this brief, affordable collection of more than 250 poems covers the full scope of the poetic tradition.  Chronologically organized, this anthology includes master poets from Spenser, Sidney, and Shakespeare to contemporary artists of the 21st century, reflecting the work of the genre’s most distinguished writers as well as a wide array of diverse voices.
