Almost all other poetry anthologies have been edited and annotated by a committee of scholars. This is entirely Bloom's selection with his own inimitable commentary. This comprehensive anthology attempts to give the common reader possession of six centuries of great British and American poetry. The book features a large introductory essay by Harold Bloom called The Art of Reading Poetry, which presents his critical reflections of more than half a century devoted to the reading, teaching, and writing about the literary achievement he loves most. There are also headnotes by Harold Bloom to every poet in the volume as well as to the most important individual poems. Much more than any other anthology ever gathered, this book provides readers who desire the pleasures of a sublime art with very nearly everything they need in a single volume. It also is regarded by its editor as his final meditation upon all those who have formed his mind.
