A Pocketful of Poems: Vintage Verse

Front Cover
Harcourt Brace College Publishers, 1996 - Literary Criticism - 132 pages
0 Reviews
As with two prose anthologies that launched the Pocketful series, A Pocketful of Poems: Vintage Verse is aimed at satisfying the need for a concise, quality collection that students will find inexpensive sand that instructors will enjoy teaching. The reception of this series has supported the original assumption that students and teachers would welcome an innovative alternative to huge anthologies, which are rarely used entirely, tend to be too bulky to carry and to handle in class. Containing 125 poems, this affordable companion contains some of the most commonly studied works in classes around the country.
