Poets Reading: The Field Symposiaby David Walker
Synopses & Reviews
When poets read other poets, as these eighteen symposia collected from the past twenty years of Field amply demonstrate, they read with vivid insight, astonishing empathy, and aesthetic penetration. A Who's Who of contemporary poets illuminates Dickinson, Akhmatova, Stevens, Bishop, Neruda, Merwin, and twelve other great modernists. All lovers of poetry should have this book, and students of poetry will find it has far more to teach them than whole mountain ranges of standard-issue literary criticism.
