Proses: SELECTED ESSAYS, REVIEWS, AND CONVERSATION
Copper Canyon Press, 1993 - 194 Seiten
Proses has been selected as the inaugural volume in the Copper Canyon Press Writing Re: Writing series, each annual volume to be a major collection of essays on poetry by a leading poet. In these essays and reviews, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet assays the work of many contemporary poets including Hayden Carruth, Denise Levertov, James Merrill, Louise Bogan, Robert Creeley, Marge Piercy, John Berryman and others. She offers the first major American assessment of the English poet John Clare, and discusses the influence of Alexander Pope on her own poetry. She also contributes a major autobiographical essay. If the subjects and occasions of her prose on poets and poetry are eclectic, they onetheless provide a sweeping insight into the depth of her passion, intelligence and imagination.
