Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic comparative study of poetry from Homer to the 20th century, reissued for today's readers.

Synopsis:

By juxtaposing several translations of the same passage from Homer; an elegy from Ovid and lines from Herrick that read like an adaptation of Ovid; or a 15th-century poem about a rooster and a contemporary poem about white chickens, Louis Zukofsky has established a means for judging the values of poetic writing.

A wonderful education for the fledgling poet, this handbook, first published in 1948, is the best elucidation of Zukofsky's objectivist premises for recognizing value in specific instances of poetry.
