An interesting read in part because it works in backwards chronological order, moving from the 19th century backwards, so one can watch the language growing more archaic. Though interestingly, the poetry does not simply get more difficult as it gets older--there are jags and centuries and individual writers who are clear and easy for a modern reader interspersed with very mannered/complex/esoteric times and writers .
