    1 thought on “Modern British Poetry”

    1. This is an anthology of 183 poems written by 77 British authors. Given the title, “Modern British Poetry,” the first thing that should be stated is that the original work came out around 1920, and so the bulk of these poems are from the 19th century. That may fit perfectly with your classification of modern poetry, but if you’re looking for present-day poets, this isn’t the book you’re after. However, the good news is that you might still find some unexpected treasures. Often collectio [...]

    2. This book only remains unfinished because I'm not such a poetry lover that I can read a whole volume at once. However, this is a lovely collection of British poetry with great introductory bios by Louis Untermeyer. Many of the poets featured may be unfamiliar to American readers, which makes it an even greater treat -- but there are many classics as well.

    3. A good sampling along with bios of poets. The editor covers some fairly little-known poets extensively and gives light coverage of some who deserved more space. That to me is puzzling, but still an interesting and instructive collection.

    4. Found a lot of old new favorite poets in here, and some that I knew from one popular poem or so but had never read beyond that. Dylan Thomas towards the end was probably the standout, but I was interested in reading Thomas Hardy's and William Ernest Henley's poetry as well. The editor's enthusiasm shows throughout the book and the bios of each poet are actually interesting and make a point to show their cultural significance, which I really enjoyed.
