Author: Helen Vendler
Publisher: London : Faber and Faber, 1995.
Series: T.S. Eliot memorial lectures.

Database:WorldCat
Summary:
How does a poet repeatedly over a lifetime make art out of an arbitrary assignment of fate? By asking this question of the work of four American poets - two men of the postwar generation, two young women writing today - Helen Vendler suggests a fruitful way of looking at a poet's career and a new way of understanding poetic strategies as both mastery of forms and forms of mastery.
