The anthologist well may follow the worker in mosaic or stained-glass, to better his general effects. Humble bits, low in color, have values of juxtaposition, and often bring out to full advantage his more striking material.
Introduction
Edmund Clarence
Stedman
An American Anthology, 1787–1900
Selections Illustrating the Editor’s Critical Review of American Poetry in the Nineteenth Century
 
Edited by Edmund Clarence Stedman
 
These 1740 selections by 573 authors comprise an unparalleled verse anthology in its concentration on representing a century of poetic culture rather than selecting the laureates only. Next to those of Dickinson, Poe, and Longfellow, the verse populi of Mother Goose, Negro Spirituals and even “A Visit from St. Nicholas” are given their place.
