Publisher's Summary

Representing the work of more than 30 poets, and extending from Thomas Hardy's lines on the loss of Titanic to the present-day concerns of Seamus Heaney, The Best of 20th-Century Poetry offers an extensive survey of English poetry of the last hundred years. It includes established favourites like T. S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock", W. H. Auden's "Stop all the Clocks" and "In Memory of W B Yeats", and Dylan Thomas's "Fern Hill", together with a generous selection of poetry from both world wars. Embracing a wide range of styles and moods, this new selection captures the continuing richness of the English poetic tradition. All poems are taken from The Time Book of English Verse, edited by Edward Leeson.
