Living Poetry Reviews


'Living Poetry is a passionately written and clear introduction that offers a strong overview of English poetry. It is an extremely useful book and guides readers through an impressive range of poems, granting them an array of ideas to be developed in their own work.' - Emma Mason, Reader in English Literature, University of Warwick, UK 'There's nothing currently available that is quite so friendly or so steady in its writing...The writing is clear and precise and uncluttered by jargon. I think many will welcome such a volume and find it very helpful.' - Martin Coyle, Professor of English Literature, Cardiff University, UK
