Abstract:

This collection of essays attempts to illustrate the art and complexity of Jeffers, while presenting new insights into his work and its reception among his contemporaries. The essays represent a range of critical points of entry - some are on the cutting-edge of criticism and break new ground; others attempt to place Jeffers in the established perspectives of Western civilization's Christian Humanism and American poetry's landscape-centered mysticism.
