|Description||In 1557 Richard Tottel published the first anthology of English poetry, the Songes and Sonettes or Tottel's Miscellany as the collection was called later on. In the following 450 years anthologies turned out to be decisive for the spreading, the teaching and the reception of poetry.
The index presents a directory of poems (title and incipit) in important retrospective anthologies of British (sometimes English) poetry in order to provide a tool for the research of poetry anthologies. All the anthologies listed here were printed in Great Britain (i.e. anthologies printed abroad are not listed). The index can be searched with different criteria. New anthologies are currently added.
