In Michael Murphy's new annotated edition of Kenneth Allott's "Collected Poems" all Allott's previously published work is combined with eighteen new poems, some of which have only recently come to light. The whole collection is introduced and annotated by Murphy and now represents the most complete picture of Allott, a man widely regarded as one of most exciting poets of the late Thirties.

About the Author:

Kenneth Allott (1912-1973) was a leading poet of the Thirties generation, publishing two collections of poetry: Poems (1938) and The Ventriloquist's Doll (1943). He was also the editor of the highly influential Penguin Book of Contemporary Verse (1950, rev. 1962). His Collected Poems has been out of print for a number of years, and this updated and revised new edition includes a significant number of poems either previously unpublished or not reprinted. Michael Murphy is the author of three collections of poetry, most recently Allottments (2008), and his poems are included in The New Irish Poets. He is the author of a number of critical studies, including Writing Liverpool?:?Essays and Interviews (edited with Deryn Rees-Jones, 2007) and Proust and America (2007). He teaches at Nottingham Trent University and lives in Liverpool. He died in 2009.

Review:

His amphibious intelligence, moving between creativity and scholarship, [makes me] think of him as an example of a man who proved how illusory was Yeats' proffered choice between 'perfection of the life or of the work.'--Seamus Heaney

A powerful apocalyptic ... tone predominates, yet identifiable fragments of late-Thirties society can still be discerned, churning around in the echo-chamber of Allott's imagination ... at which moments the effect is something like MacNeice's bagpipe music rescored for cellos and muffled drums.--Russell Davies "New Statesman "

His poetry [is] original and personal in a way rare among young poets in any period but perhaps particularly in the 1930s. [F]ew poets in this century have written consistently with such wit and feeling, such natural elegance and style.--Julian Symons "Times Literary Supplement "
