The Oxford Book of Children's Verse in America

Edited by Donald Hall

Oxford Books of Verse

A companion volume to the Oxford Book of Children's Verse, this book focuses on American writers and poets and includes anonymous works, ballads, and recitation pieces, beginning with the Calvinist verses of the seventeenth century. Twentieth century authors abound: Ogden Nash, T.S. Eliot, John Updike, and Theodore Roethke to name but a few.
