    Great little collection of poetry. Some of my favorites in here.

    Certainly not a great collection of poems from the period. Very few women included.

    It's a fine Dover Thrift edition, with tiny biographical notes. Covers a long period with a fair sampling of many poets (almost all male) and their most famous and influential poems. A good introduction to the period, especially since the Dovers are so very inexpensive! Good to have on the shelf, too, for reference. It has a good index.

    I gave this book 3 stars mainly because I struggle with poetry, personally. The anthology itself has a lot of really good classic poems within it, and would be great for avid readers and interpreters of poetry, poetry just isn't my cup of tea, per se.

    I actually bought this book for one of my old English classes, and just decided to read the whole thing. I love the selection in this book, and how there's just enough information on each poet without being overwhelmimg. I'd definitely recommend reading it.

    This short anthology includes many great poems including: selections from Tennyson's In Memoriam, Browning's "Porphyria's Lover", Arnold's "The Forsaken Merman" and some of Hopkin's best poems like "The Windhover".

    I love Victorian poetry and this squished them all together. I love the selection from poets I knew and some I didn't. Lovely.
