Clare Bucknell & Rosemary Hill: The Treasuries

Fellow of All Souls, Oxford and regular LRB contributor Clare Bucknell argues in The Treasuries: Poetry Anthologies and the Making of British Culture (Head of Zeus) that the selective way in which poetry has been presented over the past three centuries tells a fascinating story about the democratization of literature, class, gender, politics and nationalism.

Bucknell was in conversation about her book with another regular LRB contributor, social and architectural historian Rosemary Hill.
