I have had a copy of this since I was 14 years old, I read from it constantly, the pages and cover are worn and frayed from many happy years of leafing through it, it is my velveteen rabbit of books.David
My reading project for the whole school year has been to read the British Anthology from the Romantic Period through the Modern Period. That's three volumes and I've done it backwards. As of this review, I've got 46 pages left in Romantic Lit.Reading this anthology was eye-opening. I realized I love Robert Browning (dramatic monologues) and Matthew Arnold (thick criticism and honest poems), Many others surprised me, especially the prose-writing names I'd heard and assumed were dry: Thomas Carlyle, John Stewart Mill, Huxley, Ruskin, Pater.Ijorabi
Includes a wide variety of prose, poetry, and history. An excellent introduction to English literature.Jimi-carol Benton
My favorite was "Goblin Market"Drucilla
This collection tends to lean more towards essay's and poetry than fiction. The poetry has a good variety and the fiction that is in the anthology has a good variety as well.Mimi
