Source text (please read only from this text!): https://archive.org/details/anthologyofmagaz00braiiala/page/n3/mode/2upWilliam Stanley Braithwaite, a talented poet in his own right, was most notable for his anthologies of poetry including these annual collections that spanned at least twelve years from 1913 to 1924. These were composed of poems written in that year, and included a wide range of poetry from classical to avant-garde. As an African American, he also included many selections from other African American poets. He is recognized as a significant publisher of Harlem Renaissance poets.
This volume includes poets such as Robert Frost, Vachel Lindsay, Amy Lowell, Sara Teasdale, Louis Untermeyer, Edgar Lee Masters, James Weldon Johnson, and many others. A special feature of this volume are several dramatic, collaborative presentations including Robert Frost’s “The Death of the Hired Man,” Vachel Lindsay’s “The Chinese Nightingale,” and “Gayheart” by Dana Burnet.
