    British Poetry since 1945

    British Poetry since 1945 is a poetry anthology edited by Edward Lucie-Smith, first published in 1970 by Penguin Books. The anthology is a careful attempt to take account of the whole span of post-war British poetry including poets from The Group, a London-centred workshop for whom Lucie-Smith himself had once been chairman (following the departure of founder Philip Hobsbaum). While the first section, "Sources," includes older poets such as Robert Graves, John Betjeman and Dylan Thomas, the second section "New Voices" not only includes Seamus Heaney but also Liverpool poets Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Patten who at the time were not accepted by mainstream critics (although they were featured in the best-selling The Mersey Sound anthology from 1967). Lucie-Smith wrote in the introduction: The first edition of the anthology was reprinted several times. A revised edition appeared in 1985; it omitted some poets and added new ones. The new sections recognised the increasing influence of the Northern Irish and "university" poets. A. Alvarez - Kingsley Amis - George Barker - Patricia Beer - Martin Bell - Francis Berry - John Betjeman - D. M. Black - Thomas Blackburn - Alan Bold
