In this well-researched, imaginatively compiled, and hugely enjoyable anthology, all of history's greatest anonymous poems, songs, and hymns are gathered together for the first time. Such gems as "Greensleeves," "The British Grenadiers," "The Foggy Foggy Dew," and "The Man on the Flying Trapeze" rub shoulders with such lesser known but equally enjoyable works as "The Alto’s Lament" and "The Atheist’s Hymn" as well as such humorous favorites as "The Irish Pig" and "Dahn the Plug'ole." All three verses of perhaps the most famous anonymous work, the British National Anthem, are also reproduced here, including the notorious and politically incorrect second verse that has been expunged from most editions.
