Product description

Offering over one thousand years of verse from the mediaeval period to the present, The Norton Anthology of Poetry is the classroom standard for the study of poetry in English. The fifth edition retains the flexibility and breadth of selection that have defined this classic anthology, while an improved and expanded editorial apparatus makes it an even more useful teaching tool. The fifth edition includes 1,828 poems (191 new) and 334 poets (17 new). No other poetry anthology offers such abundance, which is why students hold on to The Norton Anthology of Poetry long after the course ends-it is their poetry reference book for life.
