Summary
"In Centre and Periphery in Modern British Poetry, a polemic tour of Scotland, Wales and the North of England exposes the possibility that the finest poets of the last fifty years have lived in the outlands, not networking, and neglecting to acquire linguistic signs of status. We contemplate the sublime through the works of Sorley Maclean, Glyn Jones, Colin Simms and Michael Haslam. But a second look at poetry in the South jettisons the shallow tricks favoured by High Street cultural managers to reveal a hidden stratum of intellectually sophisticated poets, even in Babylon."--Jacket
