summary
In the 1950s, a group of brash young British writers coalesced into a controversial poetic and critical movement known, simply, as The Movement. In the 1980s, a group of brash young American writers coalesced into an equally controversial poetic and critical movement known as New Formalism. Especially since the British coalition known as The Movement was short-lived, surviving less than a decade, few people could have predicted that it would have an impact that was both far-reaching and long-lasting. This groundbreaking new study shows that the The Movement lives on, in a very real way, in New Formalist poetics and poetry.
