    From Sylvia Plath?s depictions of the Holocaust as a group of noncohering ?bits? to AIDS elegies? assertions that the dead posthumously persist in ghostly form and Susan Howe?s insistence that the past can be conveyed only through juxtaposed ?scraps,? the condition of being too late is one that haunts post-World War II American poetry.

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 90.00

    Faced with the chaos and banality of modern, everyday life, a number of Victorian poets sought innovative ways of writing about the unpoetic present in their verse. Their varied efforts are recognisably akin, not least in their development of mixed verse-forms that fused novel and epic to create something equal to the miscellaneousness of the age. more...
