This collection of original essays focuses on new and continuing movements in British Poetry. It offers a wide ranging look at feminist, working class, and other poets of diverse cultural backgrounds.

Acheson and Huk have gathered a set of critical essays that fairly defines a whole new set of energies and directions in Contemporary British Poetry. It is a kind of watershed document; it frames an historical period that we can now see as having existed between the end of the Second World War and the mid to late 1980s, and it fairly predicts the new impulses and emergent energies of a new generation. Vincent Sherry, Villanova University British Poetry has not been a part of American literary awareness for some time. A few poets are known and taught, but the energy and brilliant inventiveness in British Poetry since the 1970s is largely unknown. This book offers an entrance into a rich field, and will become an important part of a general reconsideration of British Poetry in America.
