New Approaches to Ezra Pound: A Coordinated Investigation of Pound’s Poetry and Ideas
Hesse, Eva (ED)
Faber & Faber, London UK 1969 1st
 Hardcover 700g, 406pp, - small sample >> ‘All exegesis of poetry’, Hesse suggested in her 1969 introduction to New Approaches to Ezra Pound, ‘might be regarded as being, to a significant extent, idioplasty, and as such, forming an extension of the poem read’. In addition, by ‘generating a kind of corona or chromosphere around the poem, idioplasty is liable to lead the reader to subjects that may sometimes lie far outside the specifics that the poet originally had in mind’ <<< Hesse is clearly tha antithesis of poetry evaluation/appreciation as per J Evans Pritchard in 'Dead Poets Society'  Excellent/Very Good

THE OXFORD ANTHOLOGY OF ENGLISH POETRY: VOL. I: SPENSER TO CRABBE.
Wain, John (ed)
OUP UK 1990 
 Softcover 659 perfect pp, just under the 500g for posting. This two-volume (this book is part one) anthology celebrates four centuries of English poetry, from the Elizabethan era to the present day. This, the first of the two volumes, includes Spenser, Sydney, Shakespeare, Donne, Milton, Dryden, Swift, Pope, and many others, together with a generous selection from less well-known writers. The richness and variety of this tradition are represented in this collection by all the great and familiar names, but also some of the less well-known poets who have often provided startling exceptions to the poetry of their age. The result is a rich and multi-coloured tapestry of the depth, diversity, and energy of poetry written in Britain and Ireland. John Wain, 1925-94, was an English novelist and critic. He served as professor of poetry at Oxford (1973-8) and wrote or edited more than seventy books.  Very Good/None issued

100 New Zealand Poems
Bill Manhire (ed)
Godwit Auckland 1994 
 Softcover Just a slight bump to upper right corner o/wise it's a beaut - unpaginated but say 150 with notes at end. 100 New Zealand Poems is a journey through the hearts and histories and landscapes of New Zealand - from the country's earliest poems to work by new poets of the 1990s.100 New Zealand Poems is an ideal source book for students of New Zealand literature of all ages but will also be a delightful read for anyone with more than a passing interest in poetry. The poems have been chosen by Bill Manhire, who also contributes an introduction and notes on each of the 100 selections. nice review here >> Bill Manhire has done a standout job of selecting and grouping 100 New Zealand poems by 100 New Zealand poets. I'd say about 60 to 70% of them resonated with me, which is a stellar strike-rate for poems. No doubt the challenging and worthy have been omitted to make this collection accessible. It worked.  Very Good/None issued
