Dr Dharmadas Banerjee‘s book Beyond the Western Front: A Study of Siegfried Sassoon’s Poetry is an attempt to look ‗beyond‘ the popular evaluation of Sassoon as a War Poet. By the writer‘s own admission he wants to capture Sassoon‘s versatile poetic genius to dispel this popular appraisal. A poet of rare merit Sassoon is also known for his romantic sensibilities. His love for the English countryside is evident in his autobiographical memoirs. His Diaries and letters are a potent source to know about the profound influence that the catastrophic First World War had on him. The author has also tried to focus on Sassoon‘s quest for ―the world undiscovered within us‖ which is discernible in the poems of the later phase of Sassoon‘s poetic career

Eliot, Golding, Hughes, Plath and Heaney are synonymous with the name Faber. But what is the real tale behind the house that published these writers? And how did a tiny firm weather the Great Depression, wartime paper shortages and dramatic financial crises and retain its independence? This is the story of one of the world's great publishers told in its own words. Drawing on letters, minutes, memoirs and diaries, Toby Faber takes us deep inside the evolution of the company and the excitement, hopes and fears of the people who made it what it is today. This is both a vibrant history and a hymn to the role of literature in all our lives. Faber & Faber will celebrate its ninetieth anniversary in 2019.

When Philip Larkin's High Windows first appeared, Kingsley Amis spoke for a large and loyal readership when he wrote: 'Larkin's admirers need only be told that he is as good as ever here, if not slightly better.' Like Betjeman and Hardy, Larkin is a poet who can move a large audience - without betraying the highest artistic standards. The poems in High Windows illustrate Larkin's unrivalled ability to bring lyrical expression to ordinary, urban lives. It is a gift that makes him one of the most truly popular of the twentieth century's poets.

The Great War, The Waste Land and the Modernist Long Poem

The Great War, The Waste Land and the Modernist Long Poem explores how cultural responses to the trauma of the First World War found expression in the form of the modernist long poem. Beginning with T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Oliver Tearle reads that most famous example of the genre in comparison with lesser known long poems, such as Hope Mirrlees's Paris: A Poem, Richard Aldington's A Fool I' the Forest and Nancy Cunard's Parallax. As well as presenting a new history of this neglected genre, the book examines the ways in which the modernist long poem represented the seminal literary form for grappling with the crises of European modernity in the wake of World War I.

Backgazing: Reverse Time in Modernist Culture

This volume trace ways in which time is represented in reverse forms throughout modernist culture, from the beginning of the twentieth century until the decade after World War II. Though modernism is often associated with revolutionary or futurist directions, this book argues instead that a retrograde dimension is embedded within it. By juxtaposing the literature of Europe and North America with that of Australia and New Zealand, it suggests how this antipodean context serves to defamiliarize and reconceptualize normative modernist understandings of temporal progression. Backgazing thus moves beyond the treatment of a specific geographical periphery as another margin on the expanding field of 'New Modernist Studies'. Instead, it offers a systematic investigation of the transformative effect of retrograde dimensions on our understanding of canonical modernist texts. The title, 'backgazing', is taken from Australian poet Robert G. FitzGerald's 1938 poem 'Essay on Memory', and it epitomizes how the cultural history of modernism can be restructured according to a radically different discursive map. Backgazing intellectually reconfigures US and European modernism within a planetary orbit in which the literature of Australia and the Southern Hemisphere, far from being merely an annexed margin, can be seen substantively to change the directional compass of modernism more generally. By reading canonical modernists such as James Joyce and T. S. Eliot alongside marginalized writers such as Nancy Cunard and others and relatively neglected authors from Australia and New Zealand, this book offers a revisionist cultural history of modernist time, one framed by a recognition of how its measurement is modulated across geographical space.
