Über diesen Titel:
The Movement Reconsidered, a collection of original essays by distinguished poets, critics, and scholars from Britain and America, sets out to show not only that relations between Movement and other post-war British writers were more complex and nuanced than is usually suggested, but that the role these relations played in shaping the current literary scene is important and complicated. Other topics it examines include the origins of the grouping; the role of mediating figures such as Auden, Empson, and Orwell; the part the writers themselves played in promoting the grouping; the interlocking network of academics, journalists, and editors who aided them; and analogous developments in other fields, notably philosophy, politics, and language. The book's ultimate aim is to encourage readers to come to Movement writing with fresh eyes and to gain a fairer sense of its range and power.
Excellent ( D. J. Taylor, Times Literary Supplement)
It should be read. ( Nicholas Haslam, The Spectator)
The best essays here are robust in address, firm in judgment, and alert for the deflating hatpin behind the arras. It's seldom you get to use the word 'rollicking' of semi-academic literary criticism, but some of these earn the epithet. ( Sam Leith, The Spectator)
The most absorbing essay in the book... is Terry Castle's "The Lesbianism of Phillip Larkin"... Castle shows that it's possible to write wittily and sensitively about aspects of Larkin's life that usually get treated with horror, jeers or indignant defensiveness. ( Christopher Tayler, The Guardian)
Many good essays in this collection ( Stefan Collini, London Review of Books)
Expertly compiled ( The Observer)
The most useful critical guide to the Movement that has appeared in recent years... ( Alan Brownjohn, Literary Review)
What these essays share, beyond their subject matter, is the ability to write jargon-free prose thay makes room for the human character of both of the writers under discussion and the essayists themselves. In the first place, this gives readings that are as lucid as they are perceptive ( Oxford Today)
