AN OXFORD ANTHOLOGY OF ENGLISH POETRY, chosen by Howard Foster Lowry and Willard Thorp. Oxford University Press, New York.

By A. C. B.

Oxford's companion volume to the anthology of English poetry, which ranges from the medieval-lyrics up through the poets of the turn of the century, is as adequately and carefully selected as a collection with its purpose should be. No undue attention is paid to the Romantics, who for some anthologizers are the only English poets, yet no less than the fitting amount of contributions from their pens are included. The editors, both of the prose volume and its poetry companion, have done their work with great skill. Splendidly printed and bound in the Oxford blue and gold, the collections are not only eminently useful from a scholarly standpoint but valuable in their well-presented opportunities for arm-chair enjoyment.
