Most anthologies of modern verse give one or two poems by almost all the poets active during the period. Freer and Andrew take the view that is is more valuable to present a substantial selection from the most important poets. Each poet's work is preceded by a short biographical note with suggestions for further reading. For many readers modern poetry is still difficult. Notes are therefore provided to stimulate a response and to inform the reader of matters of fact. The poets represented are Gerard Manley Hopkins, Thomas Hardy, W. B. Yeats, Edward Thomas, Walter de la Mare, D. H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen and W. H. Auden.
