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

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keats : bicentenary readings( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ground-breaking volume provides a revitalised sense of Keats criticism as the twentieth century draws to a close. Original contributions are made to thinking about Keats's style, his schooling and career, and the relationship between his poetry and history." "This impressive collection brings together leading Keats scholars in a multifaceted volume which ranges across Keats's poetry and letters. New light is shed on the sources of The Eve of St Mark, on Keats's response to art and on his brilliant handling of the epistolary form. Keats's treatment of silence is discussed as well as his attitudes to sex, death and poetry. There is an innovative discussion of Keats's writings about America; the 'inward Keats' is explored in an examination of his poetry's post-Romantic, American reception; and there is a discussion of his poetic self-consciousness."--BOOK JACKET
Shelley by Michael O'Neill( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 269 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

16 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 256 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."--Jacket
