Abstract

The article introduces a group of mainly young English poets who rescued
English poetry from its decline at the end of the Victorian period and
imparted a new sound and music to it in the first few decades of the 20 th
century. During the period of publication [1911-1922] of the literary journal
called Georgian Poetry, which was edited by Edward Marsh, their
contributions appeared with regularity in its pages. In consequence, the
journal became a popular and financial success, and its influence as a
literary milestone over the years has not disappeared. The best known
names among the Georgian poets are Hilaire Belloc, Edmund Blunden,
Rupert Brooke, W.H. Davies, Ralph Hodgson, James Elroy Flecker, Walter de
la Mare, Harold Monro, Sir J.C. Squire, and Edward Thomas.
