A furious row has broken out in the rarefied confines of American poetry circles, after grande dame of poetry criticism Helen Vendler attacked former poet laureate Rita Dove's anthology of 20th-century American poetry for its focus on "multicultural inclusiveness" rather than quality.

Dove's collection, The Penguin Anthology of 20th Century American Poetry , is the Pulitzer prize-winning poet and professor of English's pick of the best US poetry of the last 100 years. Vendler, a critic and Harvard professor, laid into the book in an excoriating write-up in the New York Review of Books , criticising Dove for deciding "to shift the balance, introducing more black poets and giving them significant amounts of space, in some cases more space than is given to better-known authors".

Sylvia Plath, Allen Ginsberg and Sterling Brown are left out of the anthology – although Dove explains in her introduction that this was down to a rights issue: Penguin's budget was not enough to secure rights to include their poems in the book.

In book publishing , an anthology is a collection of literary works chosen by the compiler. It may be a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. In genre   fiction , anthology is used to categorize collections of shorter works such as short stories and short novels , usually collected into a single volume for publication.

The word entered the English language in the 17th century, from the Greek word, ἀνθολογία ( anthologia "a collection of flowers"), a reference to one of the earliest known anthologies, the Garland ( Στέφανος ), the introduction to which compares each of its anthologized poets to a flower. That Garland by Meléagros of Gadara formed the kernel for what has become known as the Greek Anthology .

Florilegium , a Latin derivative for a collection of flowers, was used in medieval Europe for an anthology of Latin proverbs and textual excerpts. Shortly before anthology had entered the language, English had begun using as a word for such a collection.
