9780091940171: The 20th Century in Poetry

This ground-breaking anthology presents in chronological order over 400 poems written in the twentieth century. The authors, both published poets themselves, give an overview of each period of history, while notes to the poems place each one in its historical context and trace the century's poetic development. Concise biographies for each poet complete the anthology.

By organizing the poems in chronological order, readers will see poets in a new light. Here A.E. Houseman, for example, rubs shoulders with T.S. Eliot, showing that traditional forms can hold their own against the modernist orthodoxy. Here are poets rescued from oblivion, such as the suffragette who wrote a compelling poem about her mistreatment in Holloway Prison in 1912 or the medical offer who went into Belsen with the British troops producing an eye-witness poem of lasting power. All the major events of the twentieth century are reflected in the choice of poems within these pages.

This richly rewarding collection makes invaluable reading for poetry lovers all over the world.

Review:

"British poets Hulse and Rae take a fresh and encompassing approach to the symbiosis between history and poetry in this prodigious harvest of more than four hundred twentieth-century poems...An entire universe of poetry lives here, making this a perfect library book, especially for smaller collections." (Donna Seaman Booklist)

Book Description:

The history of the 20th century through the poets' eyes, starting with Thomas Hardy and John Masefield and finishing with Carol Ann Duffy and Jeffrey Harrison
