Rezensionen
"The editors have admirably carried out their self-imposedtasks ... The somewhat complicated arrangement is amply justifiedif one considers the work as a classroom tool, aimed primarilyat giving a student audience food for thought, HelenGoethals." (Cercles, 2012)

"Michael O'Neill has assembled some truly memorable contributionsto the criticism of twentieth-century poetry, all of themilluminating, some of them hard to come by in recent years,acquiring here the freshness of a renewed encounter after longabsence. Some belong to the same period as the poems and shed lighton a shared context."
--Edward Larrissy, Queen's University Belfast

"This authoritative yet accessible book carries the reader deepinto the rewards of modern poetry. O'Neill and Callaghan combinetheir own subtly informed accounts of the work of leading poetswith judiciously chosen extracts from classic critical studies.Broad in scope, deep in insight, clear in historical exposition,and always attentive to the verbal make-up of particular poems andimaginative worlds, /Twentieth-Century British Poetry/ is at oncean introduction and a revisitable archive, full of sustainingguidance."
--John Kerrigan, University of Cambridge

"Both formally attuned and contextually alert, theauthor-editors have here selected passages from the best recentcritics and interwoven them with their own informed andilluminating commentary, revealing both the innovation of modernpoetry and its implication within a diverse range of literarytraditions. Altogether, the book provides an invaluable companionto one of the great ages of poetry in English."
--Seamus Perry, Balliol College, Oxford
