This anthology takes a unique approach to the process of poetry. Each poem included in the book is followed by at least one earlier draft or version of that poem. The reader is thus able to explore the development of the poet's vision and to make a variety of historical, aesthetic, and intellectual comparisons.The poets represented have been chosen both on the basis of the aesthetic strength of their work and on the grounds of the availability of previous versions of their work. The inclusion of a number of selections by poets ranging from Dickinson and Yeats to Larkin, Plath, and P.K. Page allows readers to focus in some depth on the work of these poets. Though the anthology makes no claim to present a selection fully representative of different eras, regions, or poetic styles, the inclusion of a miscellany as a final chapter adds a substantial measure of breadth to the anthology.Each chapter includes brief commentary by the editors, and questions follow each set of poems.

Heart! We will forget him!
Just lost, when I was saved!
I taste a liquor never brewed--
Safe in their Alabaster Chambers
He put the Belt around my life
I felt a Funeral, in my Brain
There came a Day at Summer's full
I heard a Fly buzz--when I died--
Dare you see a Soul at the White Heat?
Because I could not stop for Death--
I felt a Cleaving in my Mind--
What mystery pervades a well!
