Francis Turner Palgrave's The Golden Treasury is the best-known anthology of English Poetry ever published. Its aim back in 1861 was to teach 'those indifferent to the Poets to love them, and those who love them to love them more.' No anthology has enjoyed a longer life or wider influence. Over the years, The Golden Treasury has been updated by a series of editors who have responded to the changing tastes of the reading public. This facsimile reproduction of the 1861 edition makes Palgrave's original selection available once again for today's readers. Lovers of The Golden Treasury will welcome the reissue of what is now accepted as a landmark in publishing history.
FRANCIS TURNER PALGRAVE was born in 1834 and educated at Charterhouse and Balliol College, Oxford. He was Professor of Poetry at Oxford from 1885-1895. A practising poet and friend of the poet laureate, Alfred Tennyson, he is best remembered for this famous anthology. He died in 1897. AE(00): Foreword by Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate
