A Pre-Modernist Manifesto: Poetry and Prose for Pleasure, Pain and Profit Summary


A Pre-Modernist Manifesto is a collection of poetry and prose that focuses on three fundamental aspects of life - pleasure, pain and profit. The poems for pleasure and pain are principally concerned with the highs and lows of everyday living which are part of our common humanity. In contrast, the poems for profit are avowedly political and are topical in the context of the recent call by Tristram Hunt for a revival of left-wing history. This unique collection provides examples of the construction and appreciation of traditional poetry and adopts the socialist approach to writing history pioneered by J. L. & B. Hammond. Based on fact and fictional elements from the Anglo-Saxons to the present day, A Pre-Modernist Manifesto will appeal to lovers of traditional poetry and prose.
