Poetry today : a critical guide to British poetry, 1960-1984 by Anthony Thwaite( Book )
14 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 739 libraries worldwide
This is the most authoritative and up to date survey of contemporary British poetry. It is the third version of a successful survey that first appeared in 1973, and provides a succinct and accessible overview of British poets, movements and themes. The study begins with the poetry of Robert Graves and considers such influential figures as John Betjeman, W.H. Auden, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, but much of the book focuses on the work of poets who have come into prominence recently, including Wendy Cope, Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage, Glyn Maxwell, Sean O'Brien, and the 1995 Nobel prize winner for literature Seamus Heaney. Anthony Thwaite has completely updated and expanded his earlier version

Salman Rushdie by Damian Grant( Book )
7 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
"Salman Rushdie is one of the most widely discussed but also one of the most generally misunderstood of contemporary writers. This study seeks to provide a balanced view by approaching Rushdie's fiction in terms of its dual responsibility to the 'found' world of historical circumstance and to the 'made' world of the imagination. The novels are seen as characteristic texts for our times, negotiating between different (often conflicting) cultures, dissonant discourses, heterogeneous literary conventions, incommensurable conceptions of truth. As such, they offer special risks and rewards to the reader. The book also provides an account of the complex issues raised by the world-wide response to The Satanic Verses that has become known as the 'Rushdie affair'."--Jacket
