Proofs and Theories: Essays on Poetry

Proofs and Theories: Essays on Poetry Cover

 

Staff Pick

These essays share the same deftness, brevity, and perception that make Louise Gluck's poems so remarkable. Ranging from near-memoir to academic writing on past poets to the challenges contemporary poetry face, Proofs and Theories is a wonderful little jargon-free book full of intellectual and poetic insight from one of my favorite poets.

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This first collection of essays by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gluck (The Wild Iris, 1993) was well worth the wait. Passionate, penetrating, and thankfully unpostmodern, she treats poets including T.S. Eliot, George Oppen, Stanley Kunitz, and subjects including courage, sincerity, and disinterestedness.
