Stan Smith

For more than a century and a half, from the 1810s to the 1970s, the Smith family lived in and around the half square mile of School Brow, the original site of Saxon and medieval Warrington, Lancashire, before it became the urban wasteland it is today.

Stan Smith has written eight books on modern and contemporary poetry, including two on W. H. Auden. He has also edited several collections on literature and politics in the 1930s, globalisation, travel writing, modernism and postmodernism.

His most recent books are Irish Poetry and the Construction of Modern Identity (Irish Academic Press, 2005) and Poetry and Displacement (Liverpool University Press, 2007).
