She considers poetry from its composition or translation to its publication, critical reception, and consumption. Her close readings of poems by Emily Dickinson and John Ashbery, among others, offer new insights for those readers blinded by familiarity. She reflects on the consequences of literary friendships, such as Marianne Moore and Elizabeth Bishop\'s, and contends with hostile influences and their benefits - in her own case, confronting and absorbing the work of E.B. White.\"--BOOK JACKET. \"But McQuade refuses to stay within the lines that describe poetry per se.
