About this Item

6.75 x 9.5 inches. hardcover. xviii, 452 pages. Documenting thousands of British poetry magazines from the last century, British Poetry Magazines 1914-2000 records the remarkable world of the 'little magazine': a world where now famous authors are first found as unknowns. Many go on to use the little magazine as a testing ground for their writing for the rest of their lives. Here is the work of T.S. Eliot, Robert Graves, James Joyce, Laura Riding, Dylan Thomas, Samuel Beckett, Muriel Spark, Harold Pinter, Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes, Angela Carter, Irvine Welsh, and many others. Although these magazines played a key part in the lives of so many British and American authors, they often had small print-runs and short lives: many are now extremely rare. This book lists the holdings of key libraries where the magazines can still be found. Each entry gives the editors involved, the dates of publication, and other information (such as documented interviews with editors, and details of any published index). Thousands of descriptions outline the magazines while short essays discuss the literary trends of the day in the context of these important periodicals. A name index identifies well over 5,000 authors and artists involved in the little magazine scene; a geographical index allows readers to locate the birthplaces of magazines across the British Isles. Scholars of twentieth-century poetry, collectors, and anyone who loves poetry will find this an invaluable book and an interesting read. Bookseller Inventory # 92434
