    In his March Oxford lecture, he scandalises the audience by questioning the most revered of the war poets: “To say that [Wilfred] Owen wrote two of the great poems of the 20th century, in ‘Sensibility’ and ‘Spring Offensive’, but that some of his poetry, even some of the most loved, is a bit sloppy well, if one had a career to lose it would lose one one’s career, I suppose.”. For the major book publication related to Hopkins was the two-volume edition of his Correspondence, part of the new Oxford Collected Works and reported on in these pages last year (VP ). Rather unusually, no monographs devoted solely to Hopkins appeared during the year, but there were many substantial articles and book chapters.

    Edgar Allan Poe's 19th century poems and short stories still exert a wide influence on American pop culture and film, education and literature. Ironically, while he achieved some degree of fame and fortune upon the publication of his poem "The Raven" in , Poe struggled desperately with his literary career during his own lifetime.   Author of Wild Poets of Ecstasy D.J. Moores, Ph.D., is a professor of English at Kean University in New Jersey, where he teaches courses on ecstatic poetry. His previous works include numerous scholarly articles and two books—Mystical Discourse in Wordsworth and Whitman and The Dark Enlightenment: Jung, Romanticism & the Repressed s: 4.

    This Hopkins chronology describes the poet's family and early education, then gives a day-by-day account of what he was doing, reading and writing, and the people he met. Drawing on some material not published before, it illustrates the working life of a priest-poet whose work was not made public until more than thirty years after his death.   And that includes the poetry anthologies and myriad other books by today’s guest, the prolific and celebrated poet and anthologist. Lee Bennett Hopkins. Lee has contributed quite a few gems to my book pile, though happily, poetry books don’t go unread around here.
