Modern Poet by Robert Crawford

Book Description

Addressed to all readers of poetry, this is a wide-ranging book about the poet's role throughout the last three centuries. It argues that a conception of the poets as both primitive and sophisticated emerged in the 1750s. Ever since English literary works became the focus of university studies, classroom discussion has shaped attitudes towards verse. Whether considering Ossian and the Romantics, Victorian scholar-gipsies, Modernist poetries of knowledge, or contemporary poetry in Britain, Ireland, and America, The Modern Poet shows how many successive generations of poets have needed to collaborate and to battle with academia.

Behind Glass Doors by Robert Crawford Behind Glass Doors, Paperback (November 2016)

Australia's advertising agencies enjoyed their reputation as a glamorous and fun place to work. Not surprisingly, many of the nation's brightest and most creative people were drawn to advertising. Behind Glass Doors ventures into the offices to reveal the inner workings of the Australian advertising business during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

An anthology of fiction, non-fiction and poetry inspired by the isle of Iona.

On Glasgow and Edinburgh by Robert Crawford On Glasgow and Edinburgh, Paperback (November 2015)

A mere forty miles apart, these cities have enjoyed a rivalry since wistful Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and defiant Glasgow came into its industrial promise. Crawford brings them to life between the covers of one book, in a tale that mixes novelty and familiarity, as Scotland s cultural capital and largest commercial city do."
