"'Reading T. S. Eliot and reading about T. S. Eliot were equally formative experiences for my generation. One of the books about him which greatly appealed to me when I first read it... was The New Poetic by the New Zealand poet and critic, C. K. Stead...' Seamus Heaney; 'A short but brilliant history... Essential to anyone interested in the development of modern poetry'. The Guardian"
