Representing a literary tradition from Geoffrey Chaucer to W.H. Auden, this collection of narrative poetry contains tales of all kinds--romantic, humorous, ghostly, and gory--written over the past six hundred years. Most of the fifty-nine poems collected here are given in full, including such classics as Pope's Rape of the Lock, Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Poe's The Raven, and classic twentieth-century works like G.K. Chesterton's "Lepanto," Robert Frost's "The Code," Marriott Edgar's "The Lion and Albert," and W.H. Auden's "The Ballad of Barnaby." Extracts from book-length narratives such as Paradise Lost and The Faerie Queen add to the volume's richness and variety. The poems are accompanied by illuminating notes, which trace the source of the poet's inspiration, whether fact or fiction, and show how the poets translated their sources into verse. Universal in its appeal, this collection will enchant, entertain, and inform anyone with an interest in the art of poetry or who simply enjoys a good story.

The book, though used, was in very good condition. It brought back memories of my student days when I would repeatedly recite my favourite poems, most of which I knew verbatim ... "Young Lochinvar," "Horatio at the Bridge," "The Highwayman," "The Pied Piper of Hamelin," "The Inchcape Rock,"etc. These narrative poems gave me insight into earlier times and customs, were a counterpart to movies, and sparked my imagination in the days when TV was not yet the powerhouse it is. The poems were also a good source of general knowledge, quite useful for a frequent Jeopardy viewer!

I have been looking for this book for years. Studied it in high school. Great collection of poems.

Thus is a useful collection of longer poems for those in search of longer poems which are not generally found in anthologies.

This book of narrative verse is one of the best collections out in the market. The popular poems are included, from "The Pied Piper" to "Horatius," and the reader will be very pleased with this book. All the poems are presented in their entirety, but poems like Horatius have been shortened mercilessly. However, there is one negative point about this book. Most of the poems are serious poems and I think that the authors should include more light-hearted stuff, especially two narrative poems from T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats," the inspiration for the hit musical "Cats." These two poems are "Growltiger's Last Stand" and "The Awefull Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles." These are the two poems that can make the book more light-hearted.
