About this title

Synopsis:

Essays on poetry by an acclaimed poet-critic.

Review:

The balance, appreciation, and clear-eyed sympathy of Hayden Carruth's 1975 essay on Robert Frost stand as a model for literary critics. His later essays on the blues, Richard Hugo, and Allen Ginsberg are similarly engaged, fair-minded, and human. Not every first-rate poet can write well about poetry, but Carruth is that rare writer who is brilliant both at making poems and discussing them. Adrienne Rich writes that these essays "keep faith with poetry," by which she means that they refuse to simplify or objectify. There is much to be learned from Carruth's prose as well as his poetry.
