The New, New, New Poetry: A Consumer’s Guide

I’ve just written a new blog piece for the Longbarrow Press website on the influence of anthologies over the past fifty years, with particular reference to A Alvarez’s The New Poetry (1962, second edition 1966). You can read my opinions on the (undue) importance of anthology introductions and how collections are remembered here. ¬†While you are on the Longbarrow Press site it’s worth checking out the audio recordings and films of recent Longbarrow events on the home page here.
