Faber & Faber Poetry Diary 2019
The Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, is celebrating its 90th year in 2019. For nearly forty years the list was shaped by the taste of T.S. Eliot, who was its guiding light. Since the sixties, each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who were arguably the finest of their generation. More recently the creation of the Poet to Poet series has further broadened the scope of Faber poetry by including the work of great poets from the past, selected and introduced by the contemporary poets they have inspired.
