About this title


Sharpe (English, Barnard College, Columbia U.) shows how poets from Blake to Williams have constructed "unreal" or archetypal cities from such materials as the biblical accounts of Cain's exile and Babel's confusion, the Whore of Babylon and virginal New Jerusalem. Drawing on Barthes, Benjamin, and Lacan, he offers new readings of the title poets. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.


""This critical study becomes a brilliant example of intertextuality, as the critic considers the relations between the poet and his tradition, between the self and the Other, between male and female." -- Sewanee Review
