Poetry and politics by English Association( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It can be argued that poetry and politics have much in common. Both are fuelled by a sense of necessity, even urgency. Both appeal to the imagination, to the sense that things could be otherwise. Poetry can be used to praise or criticise a society; political approaches can be fruitfully applied to creative writing. Both are concerned with values, with rights, with ideas of boundaries and nationhood." "This varied and stimulating collection of essays looks at the relationship between poetry and politics from the late Renaissance to the present day. Subjects covered include John Toland's revolutionary poem Clito; the trope of trade winds as used by Milton and Shelley; Queen Victoria's role in women's poetry; and socialist content and potential in Ivor Gurney and Edgell Rickword. The final contribution interrogates the pairing of 'poetry and politics', concluding, as the volume as a whole eloquently demonstrates, that the two are closely intertwined."--Jacket
