Poetry and politics by English Association( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide
"It can be argued that poetry and politics have much in common. Both are fuelled by a sense of necessity, even urgency. Both appeal to the imagination, to the sense that things could be otherwise. Poetry can be used to praise or criticise a society; political approaches can be fruitfully applied to creative writing. Both are concerned with values, with rights, with ideas of boundaries and nationhood." "This varied and stimulating collection of essays looks at the relationship between poetry and politics from the late Renaissance to the present day. Subjects covered include John Toland's revolutionary poem Clito; the trope of trade winds as used by Milton and Shelley; Queen Victoria's role in women's poetry; and socialist content and potential in Ivor Gurney and Edgell Rickword. The final contribution interrogates the pairing of 'poetry and politics', concluding, as the volume as a whole eloquently demonstrates, that the two are closely intertwined."--Jacket
Writing and radicalism ( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
Adopting a broad interdisciplinary approach, in which critical and theoretical concerns are tested against the demands of history, this study traces the creative diversity of radical writing, covering influential figures such as Milton and Tom Paine, as well as groups of writers including the Chartist novelists. Key themes are addressed including urbanisation, the development of class consciousness and the subversive potentials of popular culture. This new and penetrating study combines scholarly articles with a wide range of original source material. The study extends the parameters of contemporary debate concerning the role and significance of radical writing to political movements over the period, and uncovers previously neglected writers. The sweeping chronological range of the study and the original documents make Writing and Radicalism an essential introduction for students of literature, history and politics
