Lives of the Poets
Michael Schmidt (au). From Piers Plowman to post-modernists, from 15th-century Scotland to the Caribbean today, Schmidt’s enthusiasm brings alive the works of more than 250 poets. He shows how history, politics & mundane accidents shape the poetic imagination, & traces voices down the centuries & across continents. Amusing, contentious, authoritative, & jargon-free, this is the most comprehensive one-volume history of poetry in English. This massive achievement inspires readers to go & read the poetry itself. “A massive achievement! It is astonishing that Schmidt never runs out of information or opinions, & that the pressure of his enthusiasm is as intense in the book’s last pages as its first.”
