Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Leaping Poetry is Robert Bly's testament to the importance of the artistic leap that bridges the gap between conscious and unconscious thought in any great work of art. Part anthology and part commentary, Bly seeks to rejuvenate modern Western poetry through his revelations of “leaping” as found in the works of poets from around the world, while also outlining the basic principles that shape his own poetry.

About the Author

Robert Bly is the author of more than thirty books of poetry including: The Night Abraham Called to the Stars; Snowbanks North of the House; What Have I Ever Lost by Dying?: Collected Prose Poems; Loving a Woman in Two Worlds; Mirabai Versions; This Body Is Made of Camphor and Gopherwood; and The Light Around the Body, for which he won the National Book Award.  He is also the author of numerous nonfiction books, which include The Sibling Society and Iron John: A Book About Men.
