Oxford Poets Anthology: 2000 by Bernard O'Donoghue


Oxford Poets Anthology: 2000 by Bernard O'Donoghue

The first Oxford Poets anthology introduces the work of six writers whose poems extend the rich tradition of the Oxford list, now continuing to develop through Carcanet in association with the English Faculty, Oxford University. The Oxford Poets editorial panel makes the selection, acknowledging promise and achievement. There is no editorial programme or ideology beyond a desire to represent the best. Drawing on a wealth of submitted manuscript material the editors chose what they found most compelling in terms of formal and rhythmic invention. Verse metered or unmetered, rhymed or unrhyming, with sure or fragmented syntax, makes specific claims. The poem, not the poet, answers.
