    Things read in this: (this is more for my own personal record keeping) Loved kind of eh about No Poetry Down by the Salley Gardens by William Butler Yeats The Lake Isle of Innisfree by William Butler Yeats September 1913 by William Butler Yeats (favorite) Easter 1916 by William Butler Yeats The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats Leda and the Swan by William Butler Yeats The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot (favorite) Not Waving but Drowning by Stevie Smith Things read in this: (this is more for my own personal record keeping) Loved kind of eh about No Poetry Down by the Salley Gardens by William Butler Yeats The Lake Isle of Innisfree by William Butler Yeats September 1913 by William Butler Yeats (favorite) Easter 1916 by William Butler Yeats The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats Leda and the Swan by William Butler Yeats The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot (favorite) Not Waving but Drowning by Stevie Smith (this one is probably my favorite out of anything) Thoughts About the Person from Porlock by Stevie Smith Pretty by Stevie Smith Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas A Far Cry From Africa by Derek Walcott Marked With D. by Tony Harrison Out by Ted Hughes Digging by Seamus Heaney The Forge by Seamus Heaney Punishment by Seamus Heaney Casualty by Seamus Heaney The Skunk by Seamus Heaney Short Stories The Mark on the Wall by Virginia Woolf Araby by James Joyce I was supposed to read Ulysses, but that didn't really happen. I still have a lot to read in that book, but all of the above is what I had to read for class (with the exception of Stevie Smith, I read her on my own and loved it). Basically this gave me a newfound love for poetry. I really enjoyed reading Yeats and Smith, and want to get my hands on more of their stuff. 'The Dead' by Joyce is in this book and I would like to read that when I have time. I'd like more time to go through it, but overall, it has some good selections in there.

    A great anthology of 20th-century writing. If you are not a fan of poetry, this book may not for you. It is a great book for poetry lovers and reading this really piqued my interest to learn about these amazing authors. A great read. I will keep going back to more essays as well.

    This anthology has many different authors which I had never previously heard of before. I feel this anthology is harder to bring together since some of these authors are still currently developing their works and their lasting impact is harder to foresee. Some of my favorite authors in this collection are Thomas Hardy, A. E. Housman, Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, T. S. Eliot, Stevie Smith, W. H. Auden, Harold Pinter, Carol Ann Duffy, Tom Stoppard This anthology has many different authors which I had never previously heard of before.

    I like this series of textbooks. Each section has a clear, concise introduction to different aspects of that theme. It provides brief, informative biographies on each author. It includes a wide variety of authors and poets to choose from. There is no way you could cover everything in this book in one semester. It has wonderful footnotes to help clarify archaic words and phrases as well. All this is presented without any kind of opinion or critique, leaving the passages open for debate or persona I like this series of textbooks.

    Love. Love for the Norton Anthologies. And I'm a 20th and 21st century scholar, so this anthology can come play in my sandbox anytime. One thing I'm not 100% pleased with (though I understand the reason for this) is that there's relatively little postmodern lit. Don't misunderstand, I'm not unhappy that there's so much postcolonial lit in the post-WWII section, but I want to see more postmodernism alongside it. That being said, Stoppard's Arcadia is an amazing play and I love that it's included i Love. Love for the Norton Anthologies.
