The work also includes verse that comprised two chapbooks, Words for Witches and De Nihilio, and seventeen previously unpublished poems.

Poetry of the Thirties, Paperback (September 2000)View all books by Robin Skelton
Auden, Lewis, MacNeice and other key poets of the 'Thirties' were children of the First World War, obsessed by war and by communalism and by the class-struggle. But from within their strongly defined unity of ideals, a varied body of poetry emerged. This book arranges the poetry to make a 'critical essay' of the period.
