`If one had to say where can you find in fewer than 1,000 pages the best of English poetry, here it is. Daily Telegraph
`by far the most balanced and most wide-ranging [anthology] we have, offering superlative value to almost every taste' The Times
`Dame Helen has seen through this enormous task with affection, wit and wonderful thoroughness.' Times Literary Supplement
`Her knowledge of English poetry is both extensive and intensive; her critical standards are eminently worthy of respect...The reading public has every reason to be grateful to her.' Critical Quarterly
`The book remains a continuous and rewarding pleasure...It is a cause of wonder how easily poems of the recent past fit with those written centuries ago without jarring or disturbance.' New York Times
