Unlike most other poetry anthologies, arranged only chronologically or limited to the exploration of one type of poem, Jay Parini's WADSWORTH ANTHOLOGY OF POETRY collects 24 smaller, more accessible anthologies in one volume. With the guidance of an editorial board of pre-eminent literary scholars and world-renown poets, Parini has offers a meaningful structure to an ambitious collection, spanning from Beowulf to Jorie Graham. More a teaching and learning text than a definitive body of work, Parini's arrangement of poetry by form, content, and context offers a new way of looking at the teaching of poetry.
