This book by a leading poet is a study of the way that people other than their authors contribute to poems. Discussing work by Wordsworth, Browning, Hardy, Pound, Eliot, Montale, Auden, Lowell, and Hill, Robinson explores how other people's lives and wider circumstances can influence the textual contexts of poems and be felt within the works themselves.
