Book of English Verse (book)

Plot Summary:

The full range of English poetry is extraordinary, both in its diversity and its splendour. The Times Book of English Verse provides a comprehensive survey of the very best poetry written in English, ranging across seven centuries from Chaucer and Shakespeare to Heaney and Zephaniah. Lightly annotated to provide clear explanation, and embracing the full range of English verse from ballads and lyric verse to love poems, epics and satires, this is the poetry anthology everyone needs, whether for study or as a classic work of reference for all the family.
