The Wordsworth Book of First World War Poetry - Marcus Clapham

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
The First World War was one of seemingly endless and unremitting waste and sacrifice.
Who will remember, passing through this Gate, The unheroic Dead who fed the guns?
was Siegfried Sassoon’s anguished cry for those whose sacrifice seemed futile. Yet eighty years later it is because of Sassoon and his fellow poets — Owen, Rosenberg, Sorley and many others — that we do remember. This new anthology will serve as an introduction to the poetry of that great conflict, and the inclusion of a number of rarely anthologised poets, many from the ranks, as well as anonymous poems and songs, serves to bring a quality of freshness to the selection.

William Wordsworth — Lyrical Ballads & Other Poems, 2003 год

4 апреля, 2012 / Автор статьи: admin
Lyrical Ballads & Other Poems - William Wordsworth

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
Lyrical Ballads (1798 and 1800) constituted a quiet poetic revolution, both in its attitude to its subject-matter and its anti-conventional language. Those volumes and Wordsworth’s and Coleridge’s other major poems were central to the Romantic period and remain classic texts in our own time. Wordsworth focuses on the essential passions of the heart and achieves a penetrating insight into love and death, solitude and community. Coleridge explores a more fantastic and dreamlike imagination, and also writes poems of quiet, conversational mediation. Both poets look with a fresh and visionary eye at the human and natural world. They examine the condition of men and women at the extreme edge of society: they are also subtle analysts of their own minds and the processes of introspection and memory. This volume contains all of Lyrical Ballads (1798) with Wordsworth’s Preface of 1800/1802, and a wide ranging selection of both poets other work across their poetic careers, including virtually all their best known and most discussed shorter poems.

Christina Rossetti — The Selected Poems of Christina Rossetti

The Selected Poems of Christina Rossetti - Christina Rossetti

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
Christina Rossetti is widely regarded as the most considerable woman poet in England before the twentieth century. No reading of nineteenth century poetry can be complete without attention to this prolific and popular poet. Rosetti’s inner life dominates her poetry, exploring loss and unattainable hope. Her divine poems have a freshness and toughness of thought, while many of her love poems are erotic, and as often express love for women as for men. The varied threads of Rossetti’s concerns are drawn together in what is perhaps her greatest poem, the strange and ambiguous «Goblin Market.304».

Lord Byron — The Selected Poems of Lord Byron, 1994 год

The Selected Poems of Lord Byron - Lord Byron

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
‘I mean to show things really as they are, not as they ought to be’. wrote Byron (1788-1824) in his comic masterpiece «Don Juan», which follows the adventures of the hero across the Europe and near East which Byron knew so well, touching on the major political, cultural and social concerns of the day.
This selection includes all of that poem, and selections from Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, and the satirical poems English Bards and Scotch Reviewers and A Vision of Judgement. Paul Wright’s detailed introductions place Byron’s colourful life and work within their broader social and political contexts, and demonstrate that Byron both fostered and critiqued the notorious ‘Byronic myth’ of

D.H. Lawrence — The Complete Poems of D.H.Lawrence, 1995 год

The Complete Poems of D.H.Lawrence - D.H. Lawrence

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
Lawrence’s reputation as a novelist has often meant that his achievements in poetry have failed to receive the recognition they deserve. This edition brings together, in a form he himself sanctioned, his Collected Poems of 1928, the unexpurgated version of Pansies, and Nettles, adding to these volumes the contents of the two notebooks in which he was still writing poetry when he died in 1930. It therefore allows the reader to trace the development of Lawrence as a poet and appreciate the remarkable originality and distinctiveness of his achievement. Not all the poems reprinted here are masterpieces but there is more than enough quality to confirm Lawrence’s status as one of the greatest English writers of the twentieth century.

Robert Browning — The Poems of Robert Browning

The Poems of Robert Browning - Robert Browning

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
Robert Browning (1812-1889) represents the intellectual and argumentative strand in English poetry in contrast to the more ornate style of Spenser and Tennyson. His poetry demonstrates how a poet must be a sharp perceptive observer of the complexity of the human condition. Perhaps his most moving poetry was written to express his feelings for his wife, the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in which he deals in a very ‘modern’ way with the uncomfortable fact that we can never quite bridge the gap between ourselves and the people we love.

W.B. Yeats — The Collected Poems of W.B.Yeats, 2000 год

The Collected Poems of W.B.Yeats - W.B. Yeats

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
W. B. Yeats was Romantic and Modernist, mystical dreamer and leader of the Irish Literary Revival, Nobel prizewinner, dramatist and, above all, poet. He began writing with the intention of putting his ‘very self’ into his poems. T. S. Eliot, one of many who proclaimed the Irishman’s greatness, described him as ‘one of those few whose history is the history of their own time, who are part of the consciousness of an age which cannot be understood without them’.
For anyone interested in the literature of the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century, Yeats’s work is essential. This volume gathers the full range of his published poetry, from the hauntingly beautiful early lyrics (by which he is still fondly remembered) to the magnificent later poems which put beyond question his status as major poet of modern times. Paradoxical, proud and passionate, Yeats speaks today as eloquently as ever.

The Selected Poems of William Blake - William Blake

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
William Blake was an engraver, painter and visionary mystic as well as one of the most revolutionary of the Romantic poets. His writing attracted the astonished admiration of authors as diverse as Wordsworth, Ruskin, W.B.Yeats, and more recently beat poet Allen Ginsberg and the ‘flower power’ generation. He is one of England’s most original artists whose works aim to liberate imaginative energies and subvert ‘the mind-forged manacles’ of restriction. This volume contains many of his writings, including: Songs of Innocence, Songs of Experience, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, and a generous selection from the Prophetic Books including Milton and Jerusalem.

The Collected Poems of Oscar Wilde - Oscar Wilde

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
Wilde, glamorous and notorious, more famous as a playwright or prisoner than as a poet, invites readers of his verse to meet an unknown and intimate figure. The poetry of his formative years includes the haunting elegy to his young sister and the grieving lyric at the death of his father. The religious drama of his romance with Rome is captured here, as well as its resolution in his renewed love of ancient Greece. He explores forbidden sexual desires, pays homage to the great theatre stars and poets of his day, observes cityscapes with impressionist intensity. His final masterpiece, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, tells the painful story of his own prison experience and calls for universal compassion. This edition of Wilde’s verse presents the full range of his achievement as a poet.

The Collected Poems of Thomas Hardy - Thomas Hardy

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Poetry Library
Thomas Hardy started composing poetry in the heyday of Tennyson and Browning. He was still writing with unimpaired power sixty years later, when Eliot and Yeats were the leading names in the field. His extraordinary stamina and a consistent individuality of style and vision made him a survivor, immune to literary fashion. At the start of the twenty-first century his reputation stands higher than it ever did, even in his own lifetime. He is now recognised not only as a great poet, but as one who is widely loved. He speaks with directness, humanity and humour to scholarly or ordinary readers alike.
