This anthology offers substantial selections from the work of forty poets who have emerged and confirmed their talents since 1945. American and Commonwealth writers appear alongside British writers, though it is not the individual countries of the English-speaking world that the volume seeks to represent so much as poetry itself, and more especially what the editor calls 'the poetry of civility, passion and order'.
