- DescriptionA collection of poetry in English by more than 100 20th-century poets. It reveals the seismic shifts and conflicting spirits of the age, from the modified romanticism of the Georgians, to the tragedy of AIDS; from the rage of World War II poets, to the drug-induced poetics of the 1960s.
