The CD is also a small treasure.

The CD is also a small treasure. It includes short biographical sketches, some great video from slam poetry contests, and mp3s of poets reading their own poems (Yeats, Heaney, Frost, Williams, et. Definitely the best anthology out there. This book is SO HEAVEY it's a pain to carry around and my wrists would hurt reading it. The selection of poetry wasn't extremely varied and forget about trying to photocopy something. The binding's so tight that there's always a huge black line from the crease and shadows over the edge of the writing when you do it. I had to use this for college but I would NEVER recommend this to somebody who is interested in poetry.

Unlike most other poetry anthologies, arranged only chronologically or limited to the exploration of one type of poem, Jay Parini's WADSWORTH ANTHOLOGY OF POETRY collects 24 smaller, more accessible anthologies in one volume. With the guidance of an editorial board of pre-eminent literary scholars and world-renown poets, Parini has managed to offer a meaningful structure to an ambitious collection, spanning from Beowulf to Jorie Graham. Perhaps more a teaching and learning text than a definitive body of work, Parini's arrangement of poetry by form, content, and context offers a new way of learning poetry.

The Norton or the Wadsworth: that is the question. Actually, it's not a question at all - the Wadsworth is the better choice by far. For many years now the Norton has been the major poetry anthology in many colleges and universities throughout the country, as ubiquitous as Wal-Mart and Wendy's. No doubt it has certain virtues, but its numerous vices, I think, tip the scales in the opposite direction. Basically, the Norton is just a chronological roster of famous poets and famous blurbs, a who's who directory rather than a real textbook; it treats individual artists separately, as if they wrote in total isolation of each other. A few pages on Milton, a few pages on Wordsworth, but it doesn't say (or show) how, for example, the former influenced the latter.

The Wadsworth Anthology of Poetry (ed., Jay Parini) is a different matter altogether, totally worth its small wad of cash. Instead of enumerating poets simply because they happen to be famous, the Wadsworth focuses on the relationships between various texts and the continuity of poetic traditions. Parini takes us on a wild ride through the history of the elegy, the sonnet, blank verse - you name it. Texts talk to each other, chatter, argue, scream. Each and every section is prefaced by an informative and easy to understand introduction, so that the whole book makes a wonderful teaching tool for intro level English courses; it is also an indispensable companion for every serious poet. Footnotes are clear, concise, and kept to a minimum. My personal favorite is the last section, "Poets in Dialogue", where you can read, for example, Andrew Marvell's "Picture of Little T.C. in a Prospect of Flowers" together with Ashbery's "Picture of Little J.A. in a Prospect of Flowers." Awesome!

The CD is also a small treasure. It includes short biographical sketches, some great video from slam poetry contests, and mp3s of poets reading their own poems (Yeats, Heaney, Frost, Williams, etc.)

Definitely the best anthology out there.
Sorryyy
came on time as described. couldn't be more satisfied.
Mr.Bean

First of all: overpriced. It was supposed to come with a disc which it didn't. Even if it had, my rating wouldn't be much better.

This book is SO HEAVEY it's a pain to carry around and my wrists would hurt reading it. The selection of poetry wasn't extremely varied and forget about trying to photocopy something. The binding's so tight that there's always a huge black line from the crease and shadows over the edge of the writing when you do it. I had to use this for college but I would NEVER recommend this to somebody who is interested in poetry. There are way better books out there!

This book gives a nice sampling of different poetry styles. I will continue to refer to it just for enjoyment's sake.

Quick shipping, just what I needed

It's great
I love this anthology, have read it from cover to cover, and have assigned it to sophomore-level students. Its greatest strength is its unique arrangement of poems by genre (the first half of the text) and theme (the second half). I especially like the last chapter, which is devoted to poems that respond to other poems. Parini's introductory notes are basic and assume no prior knowledge of poetry. He is a biographer of Frost, and thus overuses Frost in his chapter examples. I could also quibble about Parini's writing style, which is sometimes awkward. And the text is not as meticulously accurate or detailed as the Norton. But the merits of the book (its sheer breadth of 1600 pages and unique layout) far outweigh its faults. It's worth having, and reading.
