Until now, most teaching has focused on the novel as the most useful way of raising issues of gender, ethnicity, theory, nationality, politics and social class. In The Twentieth Century in Poetry Peter Childs places literature in a wider social context and demonstrates that all poetry is historically produced and consumed and is part of our understanding of society and identity. This student-friendly critical survey includes chapters on:
* the Georgians
* First World War poetry
* Eliot
* Yeats
* the thirties
* post-war poetry
* contemporary anthologies
* women's poetry
* Northern Irish and black British poets
It builds a narrative not of poetry in the twentieth century, but of the twentieth century in poetry.
