From Library Journal:

One of the outstanding poets, translators, and critics of our time, Bly has an insured place as a major figure in American poetry. A special vision unfolds in Selected Poems as Bly introduces the reader to his work through brief essays charting the poems chronologically from The Lute of Three Loudnesses , his attempt to "learn the melodic line English poets developed" while keeping "out despair he couldn't quite bring into the house," to his recent Loving a Woman in Two Worlds (Doubleday, 1985), poems that still ask for every "bit of musicianship we have." Through the essays and poems Bly's public voice unfoldsanti-Vietnam War, modern mythmaker, Jungian. He also explains his approaches to meter and metaphor. A good introduction to Bly and essential for modern poetry collections. Rosaly DeMaios Roffman, English Dept., Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania
