The Oxford History of Popular Print Culture

This chapter focuses on the mass circulation of poetry as part of popular print culture in the United States during the period 1860–1920. It also examines the cultural impact of popular poetry, particularly in the form of schoolbooks and popular anthologies. The chapter first presents a brief empirical study of poetry’s relation to the pedagogical as measured by books intended primarily for school use. It then examines the explanatory power of the popular poetry anthology, with special reference to self-consciously popular anthologies and literary curios that represent specific communities and interests.

Keywords:   mass circulation, popular print culture, poetry, United States, schoolbooks, popular anthologies, literary curios
