Some Recommended Reading

Most of the poems cited in this book will be found either in The Oxford Book of English Verse 1250-1918 edited by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and published in Oxford by The Clarendon Press ( 1939) or in the one-volume, combined edition of Modern American Poetry and Modern British Poetry, Midcentury Edition, edited by Louis Untermeyer and published by Harcourt, Brace, and Company ( 1950). It is recommended that the reader provide himself with both these books.

The standard edition of Chaucer is edited by F. N. Robinson and published by Houghton, Mifflin Company ( 1933).

Norman Ault collection of Elizabethan Lyrics ( Longmans, Green and Co., 1925) is excellent, as is E. H. Fellowe edition of English Madrigal Verse, 1588-1632 ( Oxford at the Clarendon Press, 1920).

Hyder Edward Rollins Variorum Edition of Shakespeare The Poems and Shakespeare The Sonnets (2 volumes), published by J. B. Lippincott Company in 1944, contains all that has been said by scholars, commentators, and editors about these works as well as a careful reprint of the works themselves, and is of absorbing interest to the reader who wishes to do a little research.

For the general reader, I heartily recommend Edward Hubler one-volume edition of Shakespeare's Songs and Poems, published by McGraw-Hill Book Company in 1959. This is a beautiful volume, with a clear, carefully edited text, and the notes printed conveniently on the opposite page from the poems.

Samuel Daniel Poems and a Defense of Rhyme are edited, with an excellent introduction, by Arthur Colby Sprague ( Harvard University Press, 1930).

All the books I have spoken of so far are in print. Out of print,
