VINTAGE KIDS BOOK Best in Children's Books Vol 18 Marjorie Flack Robert Louis Stevenson, Ruth Ives
...any list of “best of X literature” is always going to be a better device for exclusion than for adequately representing anything but the preferences of the gatekeepers. (Aaron Brady, "Best American Poetry Pseudonyms," The New Enquiry)
...the hardbound anthology makes unavoidably visible the process of selection and exclusion--the fundamental impulse of the aesthetic. (Jeremy Lopez, Constructing the Canon of Early Modern Drama, p. 157)
