This acclaimed anthology includes works by Wilde, Housman, Hardy, Kipling and Yeats, as well as the addition of many more women poets. Fascinated alike by artifice, religious ritual and the chance encounters of the London streets, they formed part of a generation of writers which demanded a new freedom to look at perverse and morbid kinds of love, and who expressed themselves in lyric outbursts and vigorously colloquial pieces. As a result, an astonishing variety of poetry was produced in the1890s, as is illustrated in this volume.
