The Oxford Library of English Poetry: Volume 1 - Spenser to Dryden, Volume 2 - Sackville to Keats, and Volume 3 - Darley to Heaney: "This three-volume anthology celebrates four centuries of English poetry, from the Elizabethan era to the present day. Representing this tradition of unfailing richness and variety are all the great and familiar names - Shakespeare, Donne, Marvell, Dryden, Pope, Keats, Wordsworth, Browning, Eliot, Auden, as well as modern poets such as Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes. But many of the less well-known poets are here, too, adding their thrust to the mainstream, often providing interesting exceptions to what has become the conventional view of the poetry of their age. The result is a rich and many-coloured tapestry of the art that has been most successfully practised in Britain and Ireland, in all its depth, diversity, and energy."
Books in very good condition, with some scuffs on the covers.
