dc.description 'This is the most comprehensive history of British women's poetry of the 20th century yet to appear. A work of energetic and scrupulous criticism., >its generous pluralism embraces Welsh, Scottish and Irish poets, American settlers, black, and British Asian writers. Moving easily >between history and criticism, the book is also a scholarly resource, with an impressive checklist of works by individual poets and a catalogue of anthologies of women's poetry compiled in the >twentieth century. An altogether exciting and distinguished achievement, a book where the reader constantly makes new discoveries.' Professor Isobel Armstrong, University of London en
dc.description.abstract A History of Twentieth-Century British Women's Poetry offers a uniquely detailed record and analysis of a vast array of publications, activities and achievements. Organised into three historical periods (1900-1945, 1945-1980 and 1980-2000), each part is introduced by an evaluative overview in which the emerging poets are mapped against cultural and literary events or trends. The Bibliographies record the publications of about 100 women and also offer a list of anthologies and critical works. en
