Gary Day. Brian Docherty. This collection looks at the developments in British poetry from the Movement until the present. The introduction not only provides a context for these changes but also argues that poetry criticism has been debilitated by the quest for political respectability, a trend which can only be reversed by reconsidering the idea of tradition. The essays themselves focus on general themes or individual authors. Written in a clear and informed manner, they provoke the reader into a fresh awareness of the nature of poetry and its relation to society.

Day's occasional elevations to philosophy as the bases for his arguments can disconcert, but such is the privilege of whoever writes a book's introduction. His text is full of the maxims and epigrams that could appear on the placards or in the chants of a poetry demonstration: Politics is the art of the possible, poetry is the art of the actual. Beginning with a book jacket portrait by David Hockney and a foreword by Lord Gowrie, the range of contributors is as impressive as the names themselves. Writing on every important aspect of his life and art are friends, academics intimate with his work, and people who have worked with him on stage, film, or print, thus portraying him in three dimensions. It is a sort of literary This is Your Life. Gregory LeStage is president, Oxford University Poetry Society.
