New British Poetries: The Scope of the Possible

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 1995 - English poetry - 247 pages
0 Reviews
A collection of essays about the wide range of innovative but neglected poetry which flourished outside the mainstream during the period 1970-90. The poets discussed here - including L.H. Prynne, Lee Harwood, Wendy Mulford, Maggie O'Sullivan and Allen Fisher - rejected the personal and anacdotal emphasis of the Larkin-Heaney-Hughes school of poetry in favour of modernist techniques which subverted widely-held assuptions about the poetic voice and brought questions of language, gender, politics and identity to the foreground.
