Description
Here in one volume are the top one hundred poems, as determined by a consensus of over 1,000 compilers -- the poems most frequently anthologized in English, the poems with the broadest, most enduring appeal. From Shakespeare to Yeats to Frost, from sonnets to odes to villanelles, Harmon's Classic Hundred Poems offers a feast for poetry lovers.

This revised edition is now arranged chronologically, and features new commentary and notes on verse form. This second edition also includes an index of poems in order of popularity, along with notes on words and proper names, and a bibliography for each poet and each poem. A glossary of terms, author index, and title and first line index are also included.

This book updates the first edition by presenting the new top one hundred poems. Nineteen poems that were originally included have now been replaced. Whether it's Keats' "To Autumn" now ranked as the number one poem in this collection, or George Herbert's "Virtue" claiming the hundredth spot, every poem is illuminated by Harmon's informative notes. Harmon offers insight on the historical period in which the poem was written, the verse form used, the poem's meaning, and other interesting points on tone and style. This is the ideal introduction to poetry, as well as a treasury for the seasoned poetry reader.
