9780140586718: The New Penguin Book of English Verse

This is an anthology of English verse. Poems are ordered by date of composition rather than in monolithic slabs devoted to individual poets. It also includes a high proportion of anonymous poetry and written on surfaces other than paper. The entire poetic tradition, from epitaphs to ballads, folk poetry to nonsense verse, is revealed in a fresh light.

Review:

'Keegan makes us picaros of poetry, and this very exciting, bold new book becomes our happy carriage.' -- James Wood, The Guardian

'The reader is very much at the centre of Paul Keegan's enterprise...[His] decision on chronology is justified by the vibrancy of the connection between one poem and the next...Again and again, the reader comes across such thoughtful, thought-provoking juxtaposition of poems... -- Helen Dunmore, Observer

'This big book is welcome: serious, wide-ranging, and sometimes surpassing.' -- Anthony Thwaite, The Sunday Telegraph
