The Faber Book of Modern VerseBook - 1982
The original Faber Book of Modern Verse (1936), edited by Michael Roberts, was influential in forming the tastes of a generation and gave a concrete meaning to the phrase 'modern verse'. In order to keep the anthology a reasonably representative one containing poems written since 1936 there have been two revised editions - one by Anne ridler in 1951 and one by Donald Hall in 1965. The new edition, edited by Peter Porter, is intended to be the final one and it is published simultaneously with a reissue of Michael Roberts' original.In a short Introduction Peter Porter explains the principles which he has followed in making changes to the existing selection and in making his choice of poems which have appeared since the last edition.
