The All-Sustaining Air

Romantic Legacies and Renewals in British, American, and Irish Poetry since 1900

Michael O'Neill

  • Covers an impressive range of poets, including Eliot, Stevens, Bishop, Heaney, Muldoon, Mahon, Hill, and Hughes
  • Subtle, sensitive, and close readings of many important poems bring them alive
  • Finds meaning in poetry by approaching it as a form of literary criticism - a rewarding alternative to predominantly theoretical accounts
  • Deals with many challenging twentieth- and twenty-first century poets, giving readers fresh access to numerous 'difficult' poems
