    The Oxford University Press published a long series of poetry anthologies, dealing in particular with British poetry but not restricted to it, after the success of the Oxford Book of English Verse (). The Oxford poetry anthologies ('Oxford Books') are traditionally seen as 'establishment' in attitude, and routinely therefore are subjects of discussion and contention. Blank verse Poetry written in non-rhyming, ten syllable lines. Dramatic monologue A poem in which an imagined speaker address the reader. Elegy A form of poetry which is about the death of its subject. End stopped A line of poetry ending in a piece of punctuation which results in a pause. Epigraph A quotation from another text, included in a poem.

      The work has the added bonus of a thoroughly competent edition of all the poetic texts and some DVD 'extras'.'We may take the edition first. The DVD incorporates Muir's book-based edition, bibliography and commentary from the second edition of the Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry, in two volumes (Exeter: University of Exeter Press, ). Liuzza's anthology of highly accurate, scholarly, poetic translations captures the full expressive range of the oldest poetry in English: the mournful note of elegy, the profound beat of wisdom poetry, the ardent music of faith, and the high songs of heroic fame.".

    A more constrained (and therefore more limited) collection than the full two volume Norton Anthology of English Literature, this was the second volume Denison asked me to purchase -- rather than selecting Volume 2 of the full anthology, so my bookshelf is forever bereft a copy of "Norton Anthology of English Literature, Fifth Edition, Volume 2"/5. The Harvill Book of Twentieth-Century Poetry in English, Hinterland: Caribbean Poetry from the West Indies and Britain, Hyakunin Isshu (13th century) (one hundred people, one poem) compiled by the 13th-century Japanese poet and critic Fujiwara no Teika, an important collection of Japanese waka poems from the 7th through the 13th.
