    Editor Notes

    Oscar Williams (1900-1964), editor of this book, was himself a distinguished poet. The author of five books of poetry, including That's All That Matters and Selected Poems, he has been called "clever, disconcerting, rash" (Lionel Abel) and "a very real and important poet ... (whose) powerful imagery and unique personal idiom will add a permanent page to American poetry" (Dylan Thomas).

    Mr. Williams achieved literary distinction not only as a highly original and vigorous American poet, but also as one of the great poetry anthologists of his time. His most outstanding anthologies are "The Little Treasury Series," The War Poets, Immortal Poems of the English Language, The Pocket Book of Modern Verse and The New Pocket Anthology of American Verse, the latter three published by Pocket Books. These are accepted as present-day classics in their fields and are in wide use in colleges and universities. Other anthologies include a revised edition of Palgrave's The Golden Treasury, The Major British Poets, The Major American Poets, and The Silver Treasury of Light Verse.

    Mr. Williams' last and most ambitious anthology was Master Poems of the English Language, now also published by Pocket Books. A huge work of over 1100 pages, illustrated with portraits of the poets and combining a comprehensive anthology with a broad sampling of critical writing, it is a superb contribution by the man Robert Lowell called "probably the best anthologist in America."


    Book Description

    Here is the most inclusive anthology of verse ever published at so low a price.

    It contains not only the best-known works of the British and American masters but also the verse of the most brillant poets of our own day.

    Oscar Williams, who compiled Immortal Poems, was a distinguished editor and poet in his own right, of whom Robert Lowell wrote in the Sewanee Review: "Mr. Williams is probably the best anthologist in America today."
    My Opinion

    Even if no anthology will ever be complete, this is a magnificent collection of brilliant minds.

    The book offers you the chance to indulge yourself in your old favourites and to go on a treasure hunt.

    Whilst it is needless to mention that the likes of Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, George Gordon Byron, William Wordsworth, Lewis Carroll and William Butler Yeats are to be found, it is worth pointing out that there are also some lesser-known poets.

    From the Middle English of Chaucer, it leads you chronologically to more modern texts.

    An amazing expedition through time and language.
