Arthur Quiller-Couch was a Cornish writer who often published under the pseudonym Q. "Oxford Book of English Verse 1250-1900" was his most famous work. His stories have a wide range of subjects from Viking tales, satires, historical fiction, romantic adventures, tales of heroic swashbuckling, mystery and crime fiction, and sea-going adventures. Poetry is a book about poetry and not a book of poems. Quiller-Couch talks about what in his opinion makes good poetry.
