Selected literary criticism of Louis MacNeice
Although the poetry of Louis MacNeice (1907-1963) has long been available in collected editions, this is the first volume to bring together a selection of his equally accomplished literary criticism. Drawn from reviews, articles, drama criticism, and other publications, these fifty-six selections strike a balance between his earliest and his most mature work and canvas the full range of his interests, from classical writers to his own contemporaries, with essays on such prominent personal friends as W.B. Yeats, W.H. Auden, T.S. Eliot and Dylan Thomas. The volume also contains an introduction, notes, and a full bibliography of MacNeice's short prose (not limited to his literary criticism).
