The Cambridge Companion to the Poetry of the First World War

The poetry of the First World War remains a singularly popular and powerful body of work. This Companion brings together leading scholars in the field to re-examine First World War poetry in English at the start of the centennial commemoration of the war. It offers historical and critical contexts, fresh readings of the important soldier-poets, and investigations of the war poetry of women and civilians, Georgians and Anglo-American modernists and of poetry from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the former British colonies. The volume explores the range and diversity of this body of work, its rich afterlife and the expanding horizons and reconfiguration of the term "First World War Poetry". Complete with a detailed chronology and guide to further reading, the Companion concludes with a conversation with three poets - Michael Longley, Andrew Motion and Jon Stallworthy - about why and how the war and its poetry continue to resonate with us.

The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature

The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature

The Discarded Image paints a lucid picture of the medieval world view, providing the historical and cultural background to the literature of the middle ages and renaissance. It describes the "image" discarded by later years as "the medieval synthesis itself, the whole organisation of their theology, science and history into a single, complex, harmonious mental model of the universe". This, Lewis's last book, has been hailed as "the final memorial to the work of a great scholar and teacher and a wise and noble mind".

AnOther

An eye-opening selection of Cumming's more avant-garde poetry and prose. As a poet, Cummings was a pioneer not only in linguistic and typographic inventions, but also in sound and concrete poetry. But his prose is no less experimental; he wrote memoirs, essays, and fiction that are constantly provocative and often radically experimental. To read the avant-garde Cummings is to read a writer who consistently broke with established norms, "Never to rest and never to have: only to grow". To not read the avant-garde Cummings is to not read Cummings.
