In addition, by ‘generating a kind of corona or chromosphere around the poem, idioplasty is liable to lead the reader to subjects that may sometimes lie far outside the specifics that the poet originally had in mind’ <<< Hesse is clearly tha antithesis of poetry evaluation/appreciation as per J Evans Pritchard in 'Dead Poets Society'  Excellent/Very Good

THE OXFORD ANTHOLOGY OF ENGLISH POETRY: VOL. I: SPENSER TO CRABBE.
Wain, John (ed)
OUP UK 1990 
 Softcover 659 perfect pp, just under the 500g for posting. This two-volume (this book is part one) anthology celebrates four centuries of English poetry, from the Elizabethan era to the present day. This, the first of the two volumes, includes Spenser, Sydney, Shakespeare, Donne, Milton, Dryden, Swift, Pope, and many others, together with a generous selection from less well-known writers. The richness and variety of this tradition are represented in this collection by all the great and familiar names, but also some of the less well-known poets who have often provided startling exceptions to the poetry of their age. The result is a rich and multi-coloured tapestry of the depth, diversity, and energy of poetry written in Britain and Ireland. John Wain, 1925-94, was an English novelist and critic. He served as professor of poetry at Oxford (1973-8) and wrote or edited more than seventy books.  Very Good/None issued
