book is a must for anyoone who loves sonnets' Kitty Barnette Poetry UK Newsletter 10/09/2000. A good one-volume introduction to sonnets in English.

book is a must for anyoone who loves sonnets' Kitty Barnette Poetry UK Newsletter 10/09/2000. John Fuller's strategies for selection are rational, given limitations imposed by his publisher; I'd have prefered inclusion of modern sonnet sequences and more selections by American poets. Perhaps John Fuller will publish a second volume of North American poets; the Oxford "Companions" follow this pattern. Solid, but, oddly for the Oxford Press, neither a comprehensive anthology for scholars nor a compendium for the general reader. 2 people found this helpful.

It was intended as a replacement for the older Quiller-Couch Oxford Book of English Verse. Selections were largely restricted to British and Irish poets (with Ezra Pound being allowed a special status).

Poetry Texts & Poetry Anthologies. Oxford Book of Verse.

The Oxford University Press published a long series of poetry anthologies, dealing in particular with British poetry but not restricted to it, after the success of the Oxford Book of English Verse (1900). The Oxford poetry anthologies ('Oxford Books') are traditionally seen as 'establishment' in attitude, and routinely therefore are subjects of discussion and contention.

The sonnet is the best-loved and most versatile of poetic forms, alive and well after over 450 years in English. It is still an automatic choice for the expression of intense but controlled feelings on both private and public subjects. Although it is most often associated with love poems, it is also used for devotional, philosophical, and comic purposes, and this anthology demonstrates the full range of its exhilarating possibilities. Beginning with Wyatt and ending in the present day, The Oxford Book of Sonnets juxtaposes old favourites with the less familiar: Shakespeare's marriage of true minds rubs shoulders with John Davies of Hereford's ABC of love, Keats's stout Cortez with Darley's Manrique. Women poets who revived the sonnet in the late eighteenth century are restored to prominence, and there are examples of the sonnet sequence as well as more unusual experimentation with form such as Sylvester's quadruple acrostic sonnets to his patron and Leigh Hunt's iterating sonnet. Modern poets as diverse as Seamus Heaney, Carol Ann Duffy, and Simon Armitage show that there is no better way to dramatize experience than to write a sonnet.
