I had one little question because I noticed the front covers say "edited and annotated". Does that mean the poems have actually been edited?

The "edited" refers mostly to the selection and arrangement.

However, a few of the poems are given in a shortened version, either because of length or because of (in a very few cases) a problematic stanza. In that case, our titles include the word "from." 

Also, a few of the poets, such as Emily Dickinson, were already "edited" (by someone else) because there were multiple versions of some of their poems. Tennyson, for example, is often pre-edited in anthologies, with changed spelling and punctuation. We tried to track down the "truest" versions we could, but sometimes we just had to pick one and go with it.
