schema:description"From America to Australia, and from Scotland and England to the Caribbean, it looks in detail at the poetry of six international poets, Robert Frost, Hugh MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean, Les Murray, John Ashbery and Frank Kuppner, as well as discussing the Scots work of Tom Leonard, Liz Lochhead and Edwin Morgan, and the English-language work of Peter Reading, Judith Wright and Nobel Prize-winner Derek Walcott. Identifying Poets argues that the major theme of contemporary poetry is home and that poets who identify themselves with a 'home territory' are crucial and dominant in twentieth-century poetry."@en
