About this book

Introduction

Through close readings of the major poems written during the 1930s by W.H.Auden, Louis MacNeice and Stephen Spender, this study highlights the often creative quarrel in their work between a sense of poetry as autonomous art and an anti-modernist desire to communicate. The book does not allow the poetry to be subsumed within some impersonal historical Zeitgeist; instead it concentrates on the issue of poetic achievement, giving individual poems thoughtful and illuminating attention.
