New Bearings in English Poetry : A Study of the Contemporary Situation
The author believed in the importance of "living literature", of relating poetry to contemporary human experience. He interpreted T.S. Eliot's poetic impact in the 1920 as the start of a new age in which the "other-wordly" Romantic conventions of Victoran poetry were collapsing.
