Details

Both a critic and an acclaimed practitioner, Clive James (1939-2019) has devoted a lifetime to poetry. In this collection of essays he distils all he has learnt about the art form to explain the formal structures and choice of words that give poetry its unique power. Blending erudition, insight and wit, he ranges across the panorama of 20th-century poetry, from Hart Crane to Ezra Pound and Anne Sexton to Ted Hughes, paying close attention to his favourites: Yeats, Frost, Auden, Wilbur and Larkin.
