Brief and affordable, this pocket-sized anthology focus on the poems at a cost well under that of traditional anthologies. Chronologically organized, the selections represent the full range of poetic tradition from popular ballads to contemporary work. Diversity and flexibility are reflected in the selections by women and writers of color—representing over a third of the book—and by the inclusion of virtually every traditional poetic form used in English-language poetry. Updates include twenty-five new selections from previously unrepresented poets, as well as different offerings from previously anthologized writers. Contemporary poets new to this anthology include Joseph Harrison, Brian Turner, Allison Joseph, Sophie Hannah, and Emily Moore. New poems represent poets ranging from Donne, Poe, Whitman, and Hardy, to modernists including Wallace Stevens, e.e. cummings, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Richard Wilbur.
