About this title

From Library Journal:

Each of these ten essays, written over a span of 25 years, is intended as "a musical obbligato"an enriching counterpart to the text it discusses, not a substitute for it. Most of the essays deal with individual poets (Auden, Dickinson, Bishop, Wilbur, Keats, Marvell, and Lowell). But two explore Shakespeare ( Othello and The Merchant of Venice ), and essays titled "The Pathetic Fallacy" and "Houses as Metaphors" are included. To facilitate reading, prize-winning poet Hecht often reprints poems or speeches in their entirety, and he always quotes generously. His style is learned without being labored"I present no better credentials than those of a poet who delights in poetry . . ."and his central theme is the value of poetry. Obbligati is humanistic criticism at its beststrongly recommended for all larger collections. Daniel L. Guillory, English Dept., Millikin Univ., Decatur, Ill.
