This essential survey of a century of innovation and eloquence includes such seminal early and midcentury figures as T.S. Eliot, William Butler Yeats, and Philip Larkin and concludes with analysis and discussion of the more recent contributions of such well-regarded poets as Ted Hughes and Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney. Professor Harold Bloom introduces this volume of critical essays, which also features a chronology, bibliography, and index for reference.
