Editorial Reviews

Review

By offering a truly culturally informed close reading of American political poetry, Thurston's book makes "many" important things happen: he opens up what we mean by 'political poetry, ' he reshapes literary categories such as 'modernism, ' and he offers a wonderfully readable example of the best sort of mix of literary history, literary criticism, and cultural studies. (Carla Kaplan, University of Southern California)

Review

The readings of interwar American activist poetry offered here are detailed and interesting, combining research into the poets' other political activities.--Virginia Quarterly Review



Making Something Happen breaks with earlier studies that have tended to segregate poets on the left from those on the extreme right. Examining the formal conventions of traditional English lyricism and experimental modernism, Michael Thurston makes a strong case for poetry's social agency across the divide of modernist political culture.--Walter Kalaidjian, Emory University



Highly informative.--Choice

His clarity and engagement challenge contemporary criticism.--Carla Kaplan, University of Southern California
