The Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, was shaped by the taste of T.S. Eliot, who was its guiding light for nearly forty years. Each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who are arguably the finest of their generation.
The Faber Poetry Diary is a celebration of this remarkable Faber list.
