About this book
The Penguin Book of Contemporary British Poetry, co-edited with Andrew Motion (Penguin 1982)
Landmark anthology, the first major collection of recent British poetry since A. Alvarez's The New Poetry twenty years before and the source of much debate when it was published. Identifying a shared interest in narrative, metaphor and post-modernist wit, the editors bring together work by twenty poets, including Seamus Heaney, Tony Harrison, Paul Muldoon, James Fenton, Anne Stevenson, Michael Longley, Fleur Adcock and Craig Raine.
