From the Back Cover:

PENGUIN ACADEMICS compact yet complete–and always at a reasonable price!

 

We’ve created the Penguin Academics series with ease of use in mind–the books are conveniently portable, highly readable, attractively designed, and all at a great price.  

The ideal alternative to longer anthologies, this brief, affordable, and diverse collection of more than 250 poems covers the full scope of the poetic tradition.

 

Why do you need this new edition?

 

  • Twenty-five new selections include works by previously unrepresented poets, as well as new offerings by previously anthologized writers.
  • Always looking forward, this edition anthologizes works by contemporary poets Joseph Harrison, Allison Joseph, Sophie Hannah, and Emily Moore, as well as Iraq veteran Brian Turner–a 21st century soldier-poet. 
  • Providing a new eye on poets whose work had been included in past editions, this edition includes new poems by poets ranging from Donne, Poe, Whitman, and Hardy, to modernists including Wallace Stevens, e.e. cummings, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Richard Wilbur. 
  • The poems in this edition both reflect contemporary social questions and represent a wide range of poetic forms, from sonnet to free verse to haiku.
