The Golden Treasury
Of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language
Edited by Francis Turner Palgrave
Francis Turner Palgrave's The Golden Treasury was originally published in 1861 and became the standard anthology of poetry for over 100 years. Its original aim was to teach 'those indifferent to the Poets to love them, and those who love them to love them more', and in its many editions since then it's recognized to be the most popular anthology ever published. To mark the 150th anniversary of its original publication, this facsimile reproduction of the 1861 edition features a specially-commissioned Foreword by Carol Ann Duffy (the current Poet Laureate) which celebrates its heritage and affection in the hearts of poetry lovers worldwide.
