Work of the Fellows: Edited Volumes

The Columbia History of British Poetry

Edited by Carl Woodring (NHC Fellow, 1987–88) and James Shapiro

New York: Columbia University Press, 1994

From the publisher’s description:

The Columbia Anthology pays tribute to the renowned works that any include--Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, Eliot, Auden. But the book also resurrects the voices of excellent poets, particularly women--such as Queen Elizabeth I, Anne Ingram, and Christina Rossetti. Unencumbered by extensive notes that divert attention from the spirit of verse, The Columbia Anthology of British Poetry allows readers to discover the poems for themselves. It is a collection poetry lovers will want on their shelves for years to come, to read and enjoy again and again.
