This epoch-marking anthology presents a map of poetry from Britain and Ireland which readers can follow. You will not get lost here as in other anthologies. Instead, Edna Longley shows you the key poets of the century, and through interlinking commentary points out the connections between them as well as their relationship with the continuing poetic traditions of these islands. Poets include Yeats, Hardy, Graves, Eliot, W H Auden, Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, Philip Larkin, Seamus Heaney and others
