American Poetry: The Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries

Edited by David S. Shields

“Just how groundbreaking is this latest installment of the Library of America series? It is so, first and foremost, by its very existence. The only other early American poetry anthology currently in print is—get ready for this—a recent reprint of a collection edited by Oscar Wegelin in 1903.” — Early American Literature
