Lyric shame : the "lyric" subject of contemporary American poetry

Author: Gillian C White
Publisher: Cambridge, Massachusetts ; London, England : Harvard University Press, 2014. ©2014
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Gillian White argues that the poetry wars among critics and practitioners are shaped by "lyric shame"--An unspoken but pervasive embarrassment over what poetry is, should be, and fails to be. "Lyric" is less a specific genre than a way to project subjectivity onto poems--an idealized poem that is nowhere and yet everywhere.
