The Irish Poet and the Natural World: An Anthology of Verse in English from the Tudors to the Romantics
Andrew Carpenter and Lucy Collins (editors)
"The editors of this collection from the late sixteen to the early nineteen century have edited and annotated their selection with skill, including judicious footnotes and coconut biographical notes. This is both a relief and a pleasure, making this a work one wants to dip into and flick back and forth, as indeed the editors would wish us to do... this lovely, wide-ranging and superbly selected anthology. This is a book to take down from the shelves often." -- Books Ireland
