In 1928* when A Room of one's own was published, significant living poets writing in English included W.B. Yeats (1865-1939); D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930); Ezra Pound (1885-1972); Marianne Moore (1887-1972); T.S.Eliot (1888-1965); and W.H. Auden (1907-1973). Of the poets listed, it is probably those who wrote in what would now be described as an innovative modernist style (Eliot; Pound; Moore; and Auden) who would best fit the narrator's description of the 'living poets' who express feelings that 'are being made and torn out of us at the moment'.
T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land (1922), in particular, was perceived as breaking new ground stylistically and thematically, and as a potent symbol of post-war disillusionment.
Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,
A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many.
I had not thought death had undone so many.'
