Hello /lit/, I'm looking for an introduction to english poetry, something that covers history of english language and poets, explains prosody in english poetry, and include some poems as sample and explain the archaic form of words.
Thanks in advance.

Norton and Oxford both have pretty solid historical anthologies like what you're looking for.

Not that guy, but the Norton has an Introduction to Literature by Kelly J. Mays which basically gives you an overview of literature and, as it states, an introduction.

Penguin also has some guides to literature. For instance, the Penguin book of American Verse is a collection of, what Penguin sees as, the basics of American verse.

Some examples of 'good' poets: T.S. Eliot, William Blake, John Donne, Shakespeare, William Wordsworth and a few more you will probably introduce yourself to. Also try to read some translations of Petrarch, unless you know Italian/Latin.
