What do you call a collection of poems? Not anthology, this is a 4 letter word. Doing a crossword puzzle =p
A collection of poems is called an "epos." An epos is a collection of poems that have a common central theme, typically conveying the tradition of a people. In Turkmenistan there is a national epos which is passed from one generation to the next orally since the mid 16th century when it was first committed to paper.
