The Cambridge companion to modernist poetry by Alex Davis ( Book )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This Companion offers the most comprehensive overview available of modernist poetry, its forms, its major authors and its contexts. The first part explores the historical and cultural contexts and sexual politics of literary modernism and the avant garde. The chapters in the second part concentrate on individual authors and movements, while the concluding part offers a comprehensive overview of the early reception and subsequent canonization of modernist poetry. As well as insightful readings of canonical poets, the Companion features extended discussions of poets whose importance is now being increasingly recognized, such as Mina Loy, poets of the Harlem Renaissance, and postcolonial poets in the Caribbean, Africa, and India. While modernist poets are often thought of as difficult, these essays will help students to understand and enjoy their experimental, playful, and fascinating responses to contemporary social and cultural change and their dialog with the arts and each other
Locations of literary modernism : region and nation in British and American modernist poetry ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this collection, an international team of contributors contest the conventional critical view of modernism as a transnational or supranational entity. They examine relationships between modernist poetry and place, and foreground issues of region and space, nation and location in the work of poets such as Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens and Marianne Moore. The book brings the work of major canonical writers into juxtaposition with more neglected modernists such as Basil Bunting and Dylan Thomas, writers whose investment in the concepts of region and nation, it is argued, contributed to their relative marginalisation. These essays offer a fresh perspective on contemporary revaluations of modernism through their investigation of some of the Anglo-American locations of modernism, and reassess the regional and national affiliations of modernist poetry. Locations of Literary Modernism maps a topography of poetic modernism that is quite different from what has hitherto been accepted as comprehensive."--Jacket

A broken line : Denis Devlin and Irish poetic modernism by Alex Davis ( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a study of one of the most important poets of the mid 20th-century. At the time of his death, Denis Devlin was Irish ambassador to Italy. This book looks at Devlin's work within the aftermath of the Irish literary revival and Anglo-American and French modernism and then relates it to the work of Devlin's contemporaries (such as Thomas McGreevy, Brian Coffey and Samuel Beckett) and to modernism poets since his death."--Jacket
