Overview

Treasury of Favorite Poems is a magnificent collection of some of the greatest writing in the English language. It is arranged chronologically and spans the entire breadth of both American and English poetry, beginning with a wonderful selection of Old English ballads and continuing through hundreds of years to the modern period. The book features the work of sixty major poets, including Chaucer, Shakespeare, Donne, Milton, Blake, Wordsworth, Whitman, Dickinson, Yeats, Eliot, Millay, cummings, and Auden.

The poems were chosen for their excellence, endurance, and for their capacity to seem fresh and new on every reading. Every poem in this collection contains the quality that Wordsworth describes as seeing "into the heart of things," a quality that provides balm for the beleaguered soul and that is, as editor Louis Untermeyer says, "instantly recognizable as the deepest expression of life."
