Editorial Reviews

Review

“Poet and novelist Melissa Kwasny brings together prose pieces―essays, letters, declarations, defenses, manifestos, and apologia―by many influential European and American poets. The anthology pieces follows changing notions of what a poem is, what a poet is, why we read a poem, and the development of stylistic and ideological strategies in verse.” ―Poets & Writers

Review

“We know what happened when the Shelleys met by candlelight one summer to tell stories, and now imagine wind has blown the doors open again to welcome twenty-five immortals to Villa Diodati, poets who will guide us through corridors, from romanticism to modernism, to leave us in the basement where cultures of postmodernism grow. A marvelous congery of voices.” (Sandra Alcosser, author of Except by Nature)|“Finally, everything I have up to now been forced to Fac Pac, put on reserve for my poetry workshops, or resign myself to merely quoting from is here in one place!” (Patricia Goedicke, Professor of English and Creative Writing, University of Montana)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fantastic collection of essays written by famous poets from 1800-1950. The progression of various movements of poetry such as surrealism and the interplay between poetic forms and these movements is fascinating. Imagine reading a treatise on painting by a famous painter! This book is the same, except poets! Poets included are: Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley, Emerson, Whitman, Dickinson, Hopkins, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Mallarmé, Breton, Lorca, Valéry, Césaire, Pound, Eliot, Loy, Hughes, Zukofsky, Stein, Stevens, Marianne Moore, William Carlos Williams, and Charles Olson.
