ELIZABETHAN LYRICS

First published in England in 1925, the entire stock of this remaining in 1938 was destroyed in the Blitz. It is now reissued in beautiful format, presenting the freshest period of English letters in lyric form. 640 poems, chosen from 2300, some of them never before included in an anthology. Love poems predominate, but there are also lullabies, laments, poems of work and play, travel, folklore and philosophy. The whole is presented as living literature, in chronological arrangement to convey a sense of a growing body of writing. Gift book value as well as literary appeal.
