British poet John Smith writes in his Introduction: "My first principle in choosing the poems has not been to ask, 'Is this a suitable poem for a child?' but rather, 'Do I like this poem?' Only if the answer has been 'yes' have I then put the supplementary question about suitability". Among the poets from the fifteenth century on included in Smith's anthology are Brecht, Cavafy, Keats, Lorca, Plath, Rilke, Shakespeare, Stevens and Yeats. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
