Description

Presenting a wide-ranging and inclusive selection of 20th century work, this anthology features over 450 poems by 125 poets, beginning with Thomas Hardy and Gerard Manley Hopkins and ending with Catherine Walsh and Helen Macdonald. Offering ample selections from canonical poets including Edward Thomas, W.B. Yeats, T.S. Eliot, Edith Sitwell, D.H. Lawrence, Dylan Thomas, W.H. Auden, Stevie Smith, Philip Larkin, Ted Hughes, and Seamus Heaney, this extensive collection also presents work from many poets who have not previously been included in this type of anthology. It covers many groups and movements - from the Georgians to the poets of the New Apocalypse, and the Auden group and from the Movement to the New Generation. It pays special attention to the neglected modernist traditions in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, and also includes work from post-1945 black British poets and a range of post-1960 avant-garde poetry from Britain and Ireland.show more
