Gr 7-Up-Bloom's introduction is little more than the scribbled notes for a dry professorial aside on the featured poets. However, there is much to recommend this book. It gathers in one volume the essential elements necessary for research on Owen and/or Rosenberg. The materials are well chosen and effectively edited to give students a taste of the sweet rewards of more serious research. Touched on specifically are eight poems (four by each poet), and each selection is given a thematic analysis, followed by criticism supplied in the form of excerpted essays by Dylan Thomas, Ted Hughes, and Philip Larkin, as well as many other important modernists. -Herman Sutter, Saint Agnes Academy, Houston, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
