In book publishing , an anthology is a collection of literary works chosen by the compiler. It may be a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. In genre   fiction , anthology is used to categorize collections of shorter works such as short stories and short novels , usually collected into a single volume for publication.

The word entered the English language in the 17th century, from the Greek word, ἀνθολογία ( anthologia "a collection of flowers"), a reference to one of the earliest known anthologies, the Garland ( Στέφανος ), the introduction to which compares each of its anthologized poets to a flower. That Garland by Meléagros of Gadara formed the kernel for what has become known as the Greek Anthology .

Florilegium , a Latin derivative for a collection of flowers, was used in medieval Europe for an anthology of Latin proverbs and textual excerpts. Shortly before anthology had entered the language, English had begun using as a word for such a collection.
