    1. I m actually quite excited to be reading anentireanthology instead of merely sampling selections I ve never had a professor assign a Norton cover to cover before This book covers the traditional canon Donne, Jonson, Vaughn, Marvell, etc along with a host of talented and intriguing second tier poets It also contains a rather extensive collection of critical materials which I m also gradually reading Poets completed so far favorites starred John Donne Thomas CarewWilliam Habington James ShirleyJam [...]

    2. Definitely a good selection of 17th century poetry and very good overview of authors I gave it only 2 stars which is still a like because it helped me discover that I m not a fan of the 17th c literature P

    3. Read sections from Donne, Jonson, Herrick, Herbert, and Marvell This was for a 2013 summer class at Baylor with Dr Robert Ray.

    4. Only did the readings for my class, but I think I ll get back to this one Really enjoyed 17th Century poetry
