Celebrates English poetry´s forms, lyrics, satires, hymns, odes, sonnets, elegies, ballads, and free verse in a collection of 820 poems by such authors as Marlowe, Shakespeare, Jonson, Webster, Burns, Yeats, and Coleridge
Spanning seven centuries, this ambitious and revelatory collection turns the traditional chronology of anthologies on its head, listing poems according to their first individual appearance in the language rather than by poet.

With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
