Yale University Press is delighted to offer reading groups the opportunity to win advance copies of this forthcoming anthology from the author of A Little History of Poetry.
John Carey has compiled a short, uniquely valuable anthology of verse based on a simple principle: select the one hundred greatest poets from across the centuries, and then choose their very best poems.
Ranging from Homer and Sappho to Plath and Angelou, this is a delightful and accessible introduction to the very best that poetry can offer—all woven together with Carey’s expert commentary.
In the words of The Times, “Does anyone know more about poetry than John Carey? Almost certainly not."
This title is a recommended poetry book for National Poetry Day 2021.
