Product description


...Kendall has assembled a wide range of fresh and important critical persepctives of a remarkably high quality. (Tom Walker The Cambridge Quarterly)

Kendall has assembled a wide range of fresh and important critical perspectives of a remarkably high quality. (Tom Walker, Cambridge Quarterly)

rich and wide ranging... a thorough, inclusive and invaluable guide to the field, combining accessible and informative overviews with original and insightful research. (Jo Gill, Modern Language Review)

If a definitive edition of Great War poetry criticism were possible, then this would be it... a vast scholarly effort...a large and rich achievement, with an infectious quality of 'browsability'... it addresses an academic need ambitiously and comprehensively. (James Bridges, Ivor Gurney Society Journal)

...the real quality of most of the essays. Again and again they are illuminating, thoughtful, and challenging. The array of contributors that Kendall has assembled is stellar, and the result a fine collection, one that will reward turning to again and again. (Janis P. Stout, Review of English Studies)

...for the non-specialist, this Handbook acts as a master-class in the reading and understanding of the works considered, whether familiar or not. For the specialists, it promises a never-ending source for debate... For once I have to agree with the publisher's claim that this Handbook 'is an essential resource for both scholars of particular poets and forthose interested in wider debates about modern poetry.' I should add that it provides much of value to the non-academic also. (David Page, Kipling Journal)
