Abstract:

The essays collected in this volume survey the major works of modern American poetry, from magnificent epics like Hart Crane's "The Bridge" and Wallace Stevens's "Auroras of Aurmn," to such central lyrics as Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" and Maranne Moore's "Poetry." the complexity of modern American poetry has demanded appreciation and analysis of an especially high order, and the list of critics included here makes up a veritable all-star team of close readers, from Kenneth Burke to Helen Vendler, from Richard Poirier to David Bromwich.
