On Order

Summary

Summary

This is an anthology of English verse. Poems are ordered by date of composition rather than in monolithic slabs devoted to individual poets. It also includes a high proportion of anonymous poetry and written on surfaces other than paper. The entire poetic tradition, from epitaphs to ballads, folk poetry to nonsense verse, is revealed in a fresh light.
