It is the central contention of this book that Andrew John Young (1885-1971) is still seriously under-valued amongst twentieth-century poets, principally because he has been over-anthologised - and by implication, dismissed - as yet another 'nature' poet of the Georgian ilk. A re-assessment is long overdue. Omrod argues, by way of both biography and critical analysis, that Young is a great poet, a modern metaphysical, a poet's poet, whose idiolect is distinctive and whose 'individual talent' both links to yet subtly changes literary 'tradition.
