Summary
"A History of Twentieth-Century British Women's Poetry offers a detailed record and analysis of an array of publications, activities and achievements. Organized into three historical periods (1900-1945, 1945-1980 and 1980-2000), each part is introduced by an evaluative overview in which the emerging poets are mapped against cultural and literary events or trends." "A chronology and detailed bibliography of primary and secondary sources covering over 200 writers make this a reference source for scholars and students of British poetry and women's writing."--BOOK JACKET
