A glossary of the poetry references in Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time.
Throughout Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time there are numerous references to poetry. Here for the first time, they are catalogued in order, the original sources analysed, and commentary given on the relevance of each piece. A feast of poetry is revealed, spanning nearly a thousand years of verse, and including over fifty poets – both famous and the more obscure.
Bernard Stacey is a member of the Anthony Powell Society. His previous work War Dance, catalogued the military references in the war novels, and he has written two of the 'unwritten titles' mentioned in the books.
