Editorial Reviews

Review

“While McQuade likes the 'lavish, unpredictable' qualities a poet can bring to criticism, she grants no superiority to women poets and critics per se. She does argue that, as longstanding outsiders to critical writing, women can often bring a freshness to its practice. This collection of essays by accomplished poets more than justifies her claim . . . No poet will read this book without learning something new about the nuances of the craft, and no critic will read it without realizing the need for such liveliness.” ―Library Journal

Format: Paperback
A bountiful and highly lively set of critical essays on a wide range of topics, handsomely produced and intelligently selected. McQuade favors zesty prose and multiple perspectives; you won't find many more readable and varied collections than this.
