|In the same way as many persons are capable of writing but one good work of fiction, so many persons are capable of writing but one really excellent poem.|
Yale Book of American Verse
Edited by Thomas R. Lounsbury
Thomas Lounsbury is perhaps best known for his vigorous commitment to making English a recognized and respected course of study. With his passion for the study of literary history and the American language, Lounsbury proves to be the ideal editor for this all-inclusive collection of American verse through 1912.
