The British Poetry Revival is the general name given to a loose poetic movement in Britain that took place in the 1960s and 1970s.

 Introduction - British War Poetry in the Age of Romanticism 1793-1815 - Electronic Editions - Romantic Circles
In terms of the poetry, the approval of earlier events in France perceptibly changed in 1792 with the imprisonment of the King and Queen of France, and particularly in 1793 with the execution of the royal couple and Britain's official entry into the war against the Republic of France.
The initial reaction of many British poets to the Revolution was that it was a means of bringing liberty to France, and the 1789-1792 period is marked by a number of verses written about the destruction of the Bastille as symbolic of new liberty.
However joyful the British were, there was still the recognition on the part of this nation which cherished its ideals of liberty and justice that these ideals were, at least at that time, restricted to their own nation.

Is "British poetry" — and the question of the "Britishness" of this poetry is, as we'll see, a vexed and vexing one — American poetry's land of unlikeness?
Certainly the editors of New British Poetry are firm in their belief that until quite recently the verses produced by Anglophone poets on both sides of the Atlantic have evolved along such different lines as to constitute two separate poetic traditions.
In the accounts of the two poetries offered by Simic and Paterson, as in so many other bits of transatlantic mythologizing, Americans are youthful, muscular, jazzily innovative denizens of a perpetually hip aesthetic frontier, indiscriminately wielding their broadaxes to chop down (or up) the prosody of a poetics they don't in any case understand.

 The Failure of Conservatism in Modern British Poetry
One of the key differences in the poetry world is between those who see a stream of innovation over the last 50 years, a source of hope and renewal at each moment, and those who see innovation as self-willed and unnecessary, so that poems in the style of the 50s still “look up to date”.
Part of this could be due to excessive love for dead writers; all, or most, British poets go through a phase of love for the past, which builds up to a traumatic shock of realising that they have to write contemporary verse because they themselves are a contemporary person.
He makes an intelligent case for writers who have been poorly served by other critics, when they have deigned to notice them at all, and shows the reader whose only knowledge of British poetry comes from anthologies that the contemporary canon need not be the way it appears, and that real alternatives exist.

As we work to understand their place within modernist poetry, we will also look carefully at some key contradictions in their work, particularly between the present and the past, the universal and the particular, and the culturally marginal position of each and their retrospective centrality within "British" literature.
We will conclude with the poetry of several Black British authors, whose use of vernacular and musical forms speaks not of the purity and authenticity of tradition but of the inevitable hybridization of the English language and British poetry in an age of global cultural circulation.

 318: Modern British Poetry: Auden   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Even though Yeats is dead, he says, " you were silly like us; your gift suvived it all" (33) signifying that his poetry survived his death and there is no memorial greater than the ones in the names of the fallen, which will live forever 'in the guts of the living'.
Auden believes that the subject matter of Yeats's poetry is not as important as his gift, and that his poems will continue to touch people (although never change the world) as they digest it, and take from the words what they find relevant to their own lives.
In this poem Yeats develops the idea that it is the artist's responsibility to bring God to the public and influence the next generation of children.

The course will attend closely to the pleasures of this often formally challenging poetry, making use of the many recordings we have of these poets reading their work.
