The 20th century opened with great hope but also with some apprehension, for the new century marked the final approach to a new millennium. The new century had begun with Great Britain involved in the South African War (the Boer War; 1899–1902), and it seemed to some that the British Empire was as doomed to destruction, both from within and from without, as had been the Roman Empire.

This book gives a linguistic overview of the first eight centuries of English poetry - years which produced such key works as Beowulf, Layaman's Brut and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. It begins with chapters on the social and literary context, before turning in more detail to subjects such as poetic diction, rhymed and alliterative verse, borrowed words, recurrent phrases, rhetoric and linguistic variety.

Does modern poetry take word meaning beyond the music-hall pun? How have twentieth-century poets compensated for the diminishing use of metre and rhyme? How colloquial can a poet get? Does grammatical structure ever play a part in poetic effect?These questions and many others are addressed by this volume, which takes the view that the creativity of poetry in the twentieth century often bases its inventiveness on the creativity of everyday language. Extraordinary though some modern poetry may seem at first sight, we all have the knowledge to unravel the processes that led the poet to that result.The Language of Twentieth-Century Poetry makes liberal use of extracts from the famous poets of the twentieth century, as well as less familiar names. The volume culminates in a chapter which draws together linguistic themes into an integrated analysis of three very different poems.
