Poetry in Theory: An Anthology 1900--2000 brings together key critical and theoretical texts from the twentieth century which have animated debates about modern poetry.* Helps readers to think critically about the nature of modern poetry, and to engage with broader questions about aesthetics, language, culture and imagination.* Includes texts by poets, critics, theorists and philosophers, ranging from Ezra Pound to Jacques Derrida.* Texts in translation from French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian are presented alongside the work of writers from Britain, Ireland, the United States, Africa, India and the Caribbean.* Each text is accompanied by a brief biographical and thematic introduction.* A system of cross--referencing points up significant connections and disagreements between the texts.* Includes a thematic index and chronology.
