Seek After: On Seven Modern Lyric Poets.

Seek After: On Seven Modern Lyric Poets

Ed. David Baker

Stephen F. Austin State University Press

Bringing together twenty-five "poet-critics" of the modern era, this collection seeks the heart of lyric poetry's seven most prominent writers from England and the US: John Keats, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Wallace Stevens, Marianne Moore, Gwendolyn Brooks, and W. S. Merwin. Spanning from the erudite to the everyday, these essays give readers access to the underpinnings of an often-obtuse art form and, while academic, can give readers a deeper dive into this form and the writers who embody it.
