The Craft of Poetry
Language: en
Pages: 174
Authors: Derek Attridge, Henry Staten
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-04-17 - Publisher: Routledge

This book presents an innovative format for poetry criticism that its authors call "dialogical poetics." This approach shows that readings of poems, which in academic literary criticism often look like a product of settled knowledge, are in reality a continual negotiation between readers. But Derek Attridge and Henry Staten agree to rein in their own interpretive ingenuity and "minimally interpret" poems – reading them with careful regard for what the poem can be shown to actually say, in detail and as a whole, from opening to closure. Based on a series of emails, the book explores a number of topics in the reading of poetry, including historical and intellectual context, modernist difficulty, the role of criticism, and translation. This highly readable book will appeal to anyone who enjoys poetry, offering an inspiring resource for students whilst also mounting a challenge to some of the approaches to poetry currently widespread in the academy.
Hang-Gliding from Helicon
Language: en
Pages: 218
Authors: Daniel Hoffman
Categories: Poetry
Type: BOOK - Published: 1988-04-01 - Publisher: LSU Press

When Daniel Hoffman published a brief volume of selected poems in England, the Times Literary Supplement praised “his zestful verbal performance, supple use of rhyme and other sound effects” that “make the processes of his writing interesting.” That same vitality and interest inform Hang-Gliding from Helicon, which presents more than forty new poems and a generous selection from six of Hoffman’s previous books. Commenting on the most recent of these in the Southern Review, Monroe K. Spears wrote, “Hoffman’s new volume seems to me to establish his claim to the title of major poet.” In the New Republic, Josephine Jacobsen observed: “Three major strands knit into a strong texture: myth, history, and immediate experience . . . What he once wrote of Robert Graves is true of his own work: both combine ‘A Dionysian compulsion to belief with an Apollonian clarity of presentation.’” In the opening piece of this volume, entitled “The Poem,” Hoffman writes: True to itself, by what craft And strength it has, it has come As a sole survivor returns From the steep pass. Carved on memory’s staff The legend is nearly decipherable. It has lived up to its vows If it endures The journey through the dark places To bear witness, Casting its message In a sort of singing. Hoffman’s poetry is a celebration of life, yet some of his poems have dark implications. “The City of Satisfactions” is a journey into the haunted heart of the American dream. “The Center of Attention” portrays a suicidal man being taunted by a crowd to jump from a bridge, and “Witnesses” explores the aftermath of a car wreck on a desolate stretch of rural highway. Each of Hoffman’s poems represents a striking response to the moments of being alive. Hang-Gliding from Helicon affirms the power of poetry to make possible the acceptance and transformation of life. Daniel Hoffman has given us a remarkable statement of his deep poetic faith.

British Romanticism in Asia
Language: en
Pages: 414
Authors: Alex Watson, Laurence Williams
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2019-02-15 - Publisher: Springer

This book examines the reception of British Romanticism in India and East Asia (including China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan). Building on recent scholarship on “Global Romanticism”, it develops a reciprocal, cross-cultural model of scholarship, in which “Asian Romanticism” is recognized as itself an important part of the Romantic literary tradition. It explores the connections between canonical British Romantic authors (including Austen, Blake, Byron, Shelley, and Wordsworth) and prominent Asian writers (including Natsume Sōseki, Rabindranath Tagore, and Xu Zhimo). The essays also challenge Eurocentric assumptions about reception and periodization, exploring how, since the early nineteenth century, British Romanticism has been creatively adapted and transformed by Asian writers.
