Editorial Reviews


“Re-reading Poets blends the personal, the political, and the critical in distinctive, memorable ways. Kameen presents fascinating reinterpretations of well-known poems and reveals some hidden complexities of close reading.”
—Hans Ostrom, University of Puget Sound

“Kameen’s provocative analysis should revitalize literary criticism for years to come—both by proposing a new way of reading poems and by returning critical attention to the figure of ‘the author,’ a figure who has been systematically erased by literary theories ranging from New Criticism to poststructuralism. Smart, succinct, thought-provoking, and entertaining, this book will appeal to scholarly and non-scholarly readers alike.”
—Timothy Mayers, Millersville University

Paul Kameen is associate professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh. He is the author of Writing/Teaching: Essays Toward a Rhetoric of Pedagogy, winner of the 2002 CCCC Outstanding Book Award.
