Omtale: Language and the Renewal of Society in Walt Whitman, Laura (Riding) Jackson, and Charles Olson
This book takes up the utopian desire for a perfect language of words that give direct expression to the real, known in Western thought as Cratylism, and its impact on the social visions and poetic projects of three of the most intellectually ambitious of American writers: Walt Whitman, Laura (Riding) Jackson, and Charles Olson.
