A Concise Companion to Postwar British and Irish Poetry

This Concise Companion introduces students to the most important poetic figures, movements, contexts, and trends in post-war British and Irish poetry, providing a much-needed reference point in a sprawling and often contentious field. Written by critics on both sides of the Atlantic and complemented by a general chronology detailing some of the most important writers, volumes, and events of recent decades, these essays provide contexts for critical reading, situating the central issues confronting post-war British and Irish poets within the wider framework of twentieth-century poetry.
