The Movement Reconsidered

Essays on Larkin, Amis, Gunn, Davie and Their Contemporaries

Edited by Zachary Leader

  • New and important accounts of Philip Larkin, Kingsley Amis, Thom Gunn, Donald Davie, Robert Conquest, John Wain, D.J. Enright, Elizabeth Jennings, and John Holloway - who formed the preeminent and perhaps most controversial poetical grouping of post-war Britain, known as 'The Movement'
  • A collection of original essays by an impressive line-up of contributors, including several of the best-known and most highly regarded of contemporary British poets, literary journalists, editors, scholars of English, a linguist and a philosopher
  • Includes chapters providing the first detailed accounts of the relation between Movement writing and analogous philosophical and linguistic trends in the 1950s and 1960s
  • Features writers with first-hand knowledge of the people and events about whom they write, including an essay by Robert Conquest, the last surviving member of the grouping
