From Pound to Prynne

Anthony Mellors

Published by Manchester University Press

Angelaki Humanities MUP

  • The first book to argue that late modernism is a salient feature of post-1945 literature
  • Offers a critical theory of late modernism, showing how notions of cultural redemption have survived in contemporary poetry
  • Unique in theorising recent linguistically innovative poetry rather than just using critical theory to endorse it
  • Wide-ranging contextual study focusing on the poetry of Pound, Olson, Celan, and Prynne
  • Essential reading for literary theorists, cultural historians, and scholars of modernism and modern poetry
