The long poem after Pound

The long poem after Pound
The long poem after Pound
This essay considers the long poem in postwar British and Irish verse. It suggests the difficulty of defining the form, and briefly indicates how Anglo-American writers responded to Ezra Pound’s late cantos. It goes on to explore how Basil Bunting, David Jones, and Geoffrey Hill remade the modernist long poem, focusing on questions of audience and locale. The essay concludes by considering the relationship between the contemporary long poem and other media, with particular attention to Tony Harrison’s V. (1985), Simon Armitage’s Killing Time (2000), and Kate Tempest’s Brand New Ancients (2013).

Abstract

This essay considers the long poem in postwar British and Irish verse. It suggests the difficulty of defining the form, and briefly indicates how Anglo-American writers responded to Ezra Pound’s late cantos. It goes on to explore how Basil Bunting, David Jones, and Geoffrey Hill remade the modernist long poem, focusing on questions of audience and locale. The essay concludes by considering the relationship between the contemporary long poem and other media, with particular attention to Tony Harrison’s V.
