So many anthologies have been devoted to the poetry of love that it seemed high time for the poetry of hate to have one, declares X. J. Kennedy in his introduction to this memorable array of vituperative poems. For the first time, great poems of anger and invective in the English language are brought together, with selections from the Renaissance to the present day. Most major poets of the language are represented, as well as many better-known contemporaries, in addition to unexpected diatribes by Emily Bronte, Cardinal Newman, and Ernest Hemingway. 282pp. Index.
