KIRKUS REVIEW

A useful collection, though the stricture of repeating nothing included in either The Oxford Book of English Verse or The Golden Treasury necessarily makes it an addition to a library equipped with one or other of those invaluable volumes -- and not a substitute. The range of authors is shorter -- but thoroughly representative. Author and first line index-lacking (as does The Oxford of English Verse) the title index which is a valuable asset of The Oxford Book of American Verse. Disappointing on neglect of moderns.
