(M/C Reviews, September2010)
"It is well structured, well researched, clearly written, and fullof innovative insights."
--Ian Gregson, Bangor University
"The impressive achievement of Reading Modernist Poetryisthat it so accessibly explains the poetry (including Yeats, Eliot,Pound and William Carlos Williams) and the very wide range oftheories that have been invoked to account for its complexity. Itsmethod is to start from the basics and then proceed in acommon-sense manner, and yet it uses that mode to explain why thepoetry rejects common sense and insists on the necessity ofdifficulty. The end result is not only a book that students will beable to use very fruitfully (and its comprehensive section on'Further Reading' will also help in this respect) but also agenuine contribution to the criticism of modernistliterature."
