He was a Fellow of the British Academy, and the author of many distinguished works of poetry, criticism, and translation. Among his books are critical studies of Yeats's poetry, and prize-winning biographies of Louis MacNiece and Wilfred Owen (hailed by Graham Greene as 'one of the finest biographies of our time'). He was an editor of The Norton Anthology of English Literature and of the definitive edition of Wilfred Owen's poetry.

Reviews

`Review from previous edition Review from previous edition quite simply the most rewardingly catholic anthology of battle verse I know. Homer, Byron, Macauley, Hardy - and more recently, Keyes, Reed, Lewis, Douglas and Prince - they're all here, plus an excellent brief essay of introduction.' Times Educational Supplement `a marvellous collection of old favourites and many surprises.' The Star `This collection is of exceptionally high quality.' Washington Post `full of good things...many old favourites and quite a few genuine surprises.' Vernon Scannell, The Guardian `This is an anthology that works in a way that the work of no single poet could.' The Observer
