9780521386876: A Coherent Splendor: The American Poetic Renaissance, 1910-1950

In this book Professor Gelpi traces the emergence of American Modernist poetry as a reaction to, and outgrowth of, the Romantic ideology of the nineteenth century. He focuses on the remarkable generation of poets who came to maturity in the years of the First World War and whose works constitute the principal body of poetic Modernism in English. This large historical argument is developed through monographic chapters on the poets which include close readings of their major poems. Comprehensive in scope and subtle in its analysis, Gelpi's book promises to be one of the major studies of American poetry for years to come.

Book Description:

Focusing on the poets who came into maturity during the First World War, the emergence of American Modernist poetry is traced as a reaction to and outgrowth of the Romantic ideology of the nineteenth century.

Review:

"The most vigorous, most consistently interesting study we have of twentieth-century American poetry in its relation to its Romantic precursors. Albert Gelpi's book is a powerful revisionist history of Modernism...[His] breadth and range are remarkable." Marjorie Perloff

"A Coherent Splendor has the makings of a standard; its breadth and reach make it a welcome new addition to the discussion on modernism." The New England Quarterly

"A Coherent Splendor is a book which no student or teacher of American literature would want to overlook. Its richness and insight make each of the separate sections valuable, able to stand alone as an introduction to the poet covered. As John Dryden said fo Geoffrey Chaucer in his oft-quoted remark, `Here is God's plenty.'" Leon Lewis, Macgill's Literary Annual

"A Coherent Splendor has the makings of a standard; its breadth and reach make it a welcome new addition to the discussion on modernism." Suzanne Matson, Boston College, in The New England Quarterly

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In this book Albert Gelpi traces the emergence of American Modernist poetry as a reaction to, and outgrowth of, the Romantic ideology of the nineteenth century. He focuses on the remarkable generation of poets who came to maturity in the years of the First World War and whose works constitute the principal body of poetic Modernism in English. Gelpi argues that the essential dialectic in Modernism extends and reconstitutes issues central to Romanticism. This is expressed in the interaction between two important strains in Modernism: the Symbolist exemplified in Wallace Stevens, T. S. Eliot, Allan Tate, and Hart Crane; and the Imagist, exemplified in Ezra Pound, H. D. and William Carlos Williams. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521386876
