"What is poetry?" Starting with this timeless question, George Whalley covers the entire process of the creation and achieved effects of poetry. The profound process that terminates in a sgnificant work of poetry emerges as an act of self-discovery, self-realization, and self-fulfillment. As the author writes, his object is "to see poetry and the poet in their full stature, in their full complexity, in the perspective of value and eternity; to see the poem as timelessly valuable, and the poet as a person who ... is transfigured by his art."--Meridien Press
