Self-Referentiality in 20th Century British and American Poetry

Detlev Gohrbandt and Bruno von Lutz

20th century literature has often been described as highly self-referential. This volume explores different concepts of self-referentiality through discussions of the works of Charles Tomlinson, John Berryman, W.S. Graham, Seamus Heaney, and black poetry. These explorations are framed by a survey of critical approaches to self-referentiality and an analysis of normative ideas in self-referential British and American poetry.
Contents: Essays on Charles Tomlinson, John Berryman, W.S. Graham, Seamus Heaney, Black Poetry - Normative ideas in contemporary poetry under the aspect of self-referentiality.
