Abstract:

"Steeped in the metaphysics and music of Elizabethan verse, alert to the nuances of the American vernacular, Agee's poetry is eloquent and wide-ranging. It exhibits, writes Andrew Hudgins, "a variety that we expect from the protean mind that excelled in so many different kinds of writing." Agee's passionate exploration of religious themes - "his struggle," in Hudgins' words, "to comprehend his place in God's vision"--Is especially evident in the sequence of 25 sonnets that some consider his most notable verse creation, poems that take us into the heart of his most abiding concerns."--Jacket.
