Willard Spiegelman is considered one of the finest critics of poetry writing today and this volume collects his best work on the subject, offering essays that span his entire career and chart his changing relationship to an elusive form. He takes the measure of a wide spectrum of poetry, ranging from the Romantic era to the present, through an examination of those poets whose language, formal experiments, and music have fascinated him throughout his career. With his trademark engaging and stylish prose, Spiegelman takes readers on a tour of the rich and diverse landscape of British and American poetry, as he provides nuanced, insightful readings of works by William Wordsworth, John Keats, Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, and John Ashbery, to name just a few.
