19 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Poetry written in English is uniquely powerful and suggestive in its capacity to surprise, unsettle, shock, console and move. The Cambridge History of English Poetry offers sparklingly fresh and dynamic readings of an extraordinary range of poets and poems from Beowulf to Alice Oswald. An international team of experts explores how poets in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland use language and to what effect, examining questions of form, tone and voice; they comment, too, on how formal choices are inflected by the poet's time and place. The Cambridge History of English Poetry is the most comprehensive and authoritative history of the field from Anglo-Saxon times to the present. It traces patterns of continuity, transformation, transition and development. Covering a remarkable array of poets and poems, and featuring an extensive bibliography, the scope and depth of this major work of reference make it required reading for anyone interested in poetry"--Jacket

Poetic Form : an Introduction by Michael D Hurley( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building on this renewed interest in form, Hurley and O'Neill provide an accessible and comprehensive introduction that will be of help to undergraduates and more advanced readers of poetry alike.

The all-sustaining air : romantic legacies and renewals in British, American, and Irish poetry since 1900 by Michael O'Neill( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawn from Shelley's Prometheus Unbound, the title of this book suggests the cultural and literary persistence of the Romantic in the work of many British, American, and Irish poets since 1900. Allowing for and celebrating the multiple, even fracture nature of Romantic legacies, Michael O'Neill focuses on the creative impact of Romantic poetry on twentieth - and twenty-first century poetry. Individual chapters embrace numerous authors and texts, and span different cultures; the intention is not the forlorn hope of completeness, but the wish to open up possibilities and intersections, and there is a strong sense throughout of poetry serving as a form of literary criticism."--BOOK JACKET

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Shelley by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )
6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Attacked by T.S. Eliot and F.R. Leavis, Shelley's poetry has, over the last few decades, enjoyed a revival of critical interest. His radical politics and arrestingly original poetic strategies have been studied from a variety of perspectivesformalist, deconstructionist, new historicist, feminist, and others. Of all the Romantics, Shelley has benefited most from the so-called 'theoretical revolution', as is borne out by the wide range of recent critical work represented in this volume. The thirteen essays selected analyse many of Shelley's finest poems, including Alastor, Julian and Maddalo. Prometheus Unbound, Adonais, and The Triumph of Life." "Michael O'Neill's informed Introduction explores the contours of this debate and the issues at stake in it. Detailed headnotes to the individual essays and a further reading section provide invaluable guides to the reader. This collection illuminates the enduring and contemporary significance of the work of a major poet."--Jacket
