    At that pace, it's also 1250-1918 book to do more than a few pages of poetry a day. This animist substrate of consciousness, usually incarnate it is deeper than symbolism in wild bird song, is a constant musical accompaniment to the subsequent voice of English lyric as recorded in Q's selections; often hushed, sometimes to silence, it breaks through ecstatically in the 15th century in the anonymous "Hit is full merry in feyre foreste to here the foulys song," becomes a continually interwoven lovers' refrain in the Renaissance with Sydney's Philomel "mournfully bewailing," Shakespeare's Amiens under the greenwood tree in uncruel Arden, who loves to "turn his merry note unto the sweet bird's throat," and Nashe's spring when "Young lovers meet" to the chorus of "Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo! It quickly established itself as a classic anthology, equal to Palgrave's Golden Treasury in popularity and public recognition. I was finding out that it was easier to say how I disliked some poets than to explain my affinity for others.

    Did he produce an anthology giving us a unified array of poems which are, in those words of Shelley which Palgrave had quoted as The Oxford book of English verse Golden Treasury's program, "episodes to that great Poem which all poets, like the co-operating thoughts of one great mind, have built up since the beginning of the world"? But the lyrical spirit is volatile and notoriously hard to bind with definitions; and seems to grow wilder with the years. The last two hundred and fifty pages are a disaster. A few small corrections have been made, but only when they were quite obvious. Does his book embody that one great poem?

If you are a fan of "Rumpole of the Bailey", this is the book that he would quote poetry from. This book is sort of an "everyman's" collection and so I recommend it to everyone, particularly for non-literary types who just want to read something enjoyable. The poetry tends towards the beautiful and musical.

I have it still, in pretty good condition since its over half a Rhyming fairy tales read to me at bedtime may have started my passion for poetry, but this book, a gift from my grandfather, confirmed it.

But the lyrical spirit is volatile and notoriously hard to bind with definitions; and seems to grow wilder with the years. And rather than make the book unwieldy I have eschewed notes—reluctantly when some obscure passage or allusion seemed to ask for a timely word; with more equanimity when the temptation was to criticize or 'appreciate'.

For convenience, again, I have set myself certain 1250-1918 book of spelling. Overall, there is a larger focus on poems about love and religion.

It is for the reader to judge if I have so managed it as to serve those who already love poetry and to implant that love in some young The Oxford book of English verse not yet initiated. When faced with this 1, page collection, it seemed like a near-impossible task.

For convenience, too, as well as to avoid a dispute-royal, I have gathered the most of the Ballads into the middle of the Seventeenth Century; where they fill a languid interval between two winds of inspiration--the Italian dying down with Milton and the French following at the heels of the restored Royalists.

Nor have I sought in these Islands only, but wheresoever the Muse has followed the tongue which among living tongues she most delights to honour. It quickly established itself as a classic anthology, equal to Palgrave's Golden Treasury in popularity and public recognition.

The opening poem slips out. If you are a fan of "Rumpole of the Bailey", this is the book that he would quote poetry from. A few small corrections have been made, but only when they were quite obvious. I have it still, in pretty good condition since its over half a century old, only a few loose pages near the beginning.

Not all the poetry there is bad, and some which is has an excuse: we may tolerate, for instance, encountering lines like "Riches I hold in light esteem, And Love I laugh to scorn," once we learn that they were written by Emily Bronteand it must be admitted that some are poems, such as Cory's "Heraclitus," which we cherish exactly because they are bad, like some appalling lamp given us by Auntie twenty years ago which we have come to love not despite but because of its hideousness.

We might also notice that Q's second piece, "The Irish Dancer," raises the question of the relationship of English poetry to English nationality, a problem to which editors of the subsequent Oxford anthologies devised very different solutions, none of them to general satisfaction.

Collections put together today such as the Norton anthology reflects more poetry which is viewed as "important" critically or historically, for "English majors" rather than the general public.

It is poetry for living more than poetry for study. In declaring the enduring nature of the English verse tradition, 'Q' ensured that The Oxford Book of English Verse would itself endure and prosper.

The collection itself reflects the critical mind of ; there is no way this collection would be put together today, and this book has gone through many editions since. He held firmly to the belief that old favourites deserved their place as much as new discoveries, and held himself at odds with those who sneer 'at things long by catholic consent accounted beautiful'.
