Product description

"Something We Have That They Don't" presents a variety of essays on the relationship between British and American poetry since 1925. The essays collected here all explore some aspect of the rich and complex history of Anglo-American poetic relations. Since the dawn of Modernism poets either side of the Atlantic have frequently inspired each other's developments, and Clark and Ford' study aims to chart some of the currents of these ever-shifting relations. Poets discussed in these essays include John Ashbery, W.H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop, T.S. ELiot, Mark Ford, Robert Graves, Thom Gunn, Lee Harwood, Geoffrey Hill, Michael Hofmann, Susan Howe, Robert Lowell and W.B. Yeats.

Review quote

"The essays in this book are scrupulous as well as imaginative, and the entire collection adds life to the idea of transatlantic modernism. It is sure to be appreciated by readers of Yeats, Auden, Gunn, Lowell, and the other poets, joined here in surprising counterpoint, who prove to be 'Not helplessly strange to the new conditions.'"--David Bromwich, Yale University, author of "Skeptical Music: Essays on Modern Poetry" and "Hazlett: The Mind of a Critic"
