Professor Tim Kendall

Research interests

I have published mainly on twentieth-century poetry from Britain, Ireland and America, including full-length studies of Sylvia Plath and Paul Muldoon. Several of my recent publications have focused on war poetry: Modern English War Poetry (OUP, 2006); ed. The Oxford Handbook of British and Irish War Poetry (OUP, 2007). My annotated anthology, Poetry of the First World War, appeared from Oxford World's Classics on Remembrance Day, 2013.  Also under contract is a three-volume variorum edition of Ivor Gurney's Complete Poems, which I am editing with Philip Lancaster for Oxford English Texts (vol. 1 due 2016). My war poetry blog can be found at

My latest monograph is The Art of Robert Frost, published by Yale UP in April 2012.

I was presenter of BBC4's Ivor Gurney: The Poet Who Loved the War (2014).
