'Georgian' poetry has two meanings poetry of Britain and Ireland written in the period 1910 1929; and poetry of a movement free of anxiety self doubt self hate a movement that values natural simplicity emotional warmth and moral innocence as the introduction by James Reeves phrases it and is set in the countryside than in cities So although Eliot Pound and so on were increasingly influential in this period they are not Georgian poets'Georgian' includes the period and the poetry of the First World War The twenty poets included in this volume were born between 1859 AE Housman and 1896 Edmund Blunden; five of them Edward Thomas James Elroy Flecker Rupert Brooke Wilfred Owen and Charles Sorley died between 1915 and 1918; the others lived on for decades afterwards some having survived the war some having been too old for it Their poetry continued to evolve for the most part but their later work is not included in this bookSo the wide range of tone and theme includes all theseHousman's 'Her strong enchantments failing'The ueen of air and darknessBegins to shrill and cry'O young man O my slayerTomorrow you will die'Davies 'The Inuest'For as I looked at that one eyeIt seemed to laugh and say with glee'What caused my death you'll never know Perhaps my mother murdered me'Stephens' 'A Glass of Beer'May she marry a ghost and bear him a kitten and mayThe High King of Glory permit her to get the mangeSassoon's 'Prelude The Troops'Dim gradual thinning of the shapeless gloomShudders to drizzling daybreak that revealsDisconsolate men who stamp their sodden bootsAnd turn dulled sunken faces to the skyHaggard and hopelessOwen's 'Anthem for Doomed Youth'What passing bells for these who die as cattle?Only the monstrous anger of the gunsOnly the stuttering rifles' rapid rattleCan patter out their hasty orizonsand Graves' 'Outlaws'Owls they whinny down the night;Bats go zigzag byAmbushed in shadow beyond sightThe outlaws liePastoral in peace or war calm or charm or outrage the Georgian movement was dismissed as outdated and second rate throughout most of the rest of the century as poetry turned to formless introspection turned away in my mind from the word for word memorableness that is a reuirement of poetryThe Georgians as represented in this book are highly memorable and excellent poets This was an attempt in the 1960's to look back 50 years or so to extract the best from the Georgian period Read now 50 years on from then it doesn't look like a good choice I have many contemporary anthologies which are full of much better verse from the period But Reeves does include some Housman some Edward Thomas and plenty of Andrew Young so all is not lost I am very disappointe with the book If this is the best of Georgian poetry as James Reeves claims in his introduction then I'm afraid Georgian poetry is nothing but a mere lame imitation of victorian poetry I could only find very little gems in mountains of soil and it wasn't worth it A real mixture
