Although nearly one thousand poems are contained in these pages, this volume is not another effort to outdo the many existing anthologies in length, breadth, and thickness. Differing from other colections in kind as well as degree, this is an attempt to combine the lives of the poets and the work they produced, to trace the record of shifting taste, and to present the poetry as living documents of renewed experience.
