Book on poetry "From Auden to Yeats" launched

I just launched the second edition, with some revisions, of my book "From Auden to Yeats: Critical Analysis of 30 Selected Poems for Literature Students".

Here is a description of the book:

This book is a ready reference for students of English literature looking for help navigating the poetry of some of the late nineteenth and twentieth century’s greatest poets. The book contains in-depth critical analyses of 30 selected poems from the work of W.H. Auden, Ted Hughes, John Keats, Philip Larkin and W.B. Yeats, as well as brief biographies on each poet, which help to put the poetry in context. The book aims to provide not only a basic understanding of each poem featured, but also explains themes, motifs and symbols used in the poems. This is an invaluable guide for school and college students of English literature or anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of some of the best-known poetry of the last century.
I became fascinated by poetry in high school, especially the nineteenth and twentieth century greats. This is my second book, my first book was commissioned by a leading educational publisher in India, on the poetry of Seamus Heaney. It's available in paperback version, now in its 5th edition.

This book is available currently on Lulu.com as an ebook.
