A classic anthology of British verse, Francis Turner Palgave's The Golden Treasury is an invaluable collection of the best-known and most widely celebrated poets of the British Isles. First published in 1861, the Treasury has been updated many times over the years. In this, the Fifth
Edition, John Press includes a "Fifth Book" which greatly enriches the original collection with recent work. The anthology spans several centuries, from Spenser, John Clare, the Brownings, Shakespeare, Shelley, and Tennyson to Edward Lear, Phillip Larkin, Ted Hughes, Thom Gunn, Jon Silkin, T.S.
Eliot, and many more. Complete with insightful, line-by-line notes, this volume will delight and inform both the student of literature and the general lover of poetry. The definitive introduction to the best of British verse, The Golden Treasury remains a testament to the richness of our native
poetic language.
