Coneixement comú



FROM AMAZON: Randall Jarrell was the critic whose taste defined American poetry after World War II. Poetry and the Age, his first collection of criticism, was published in 1953. It has been in and out of print over the past 40 years and has become a classic of American letters. In this new edition, two long-lost lectures by Jarrell have been added. Recently discovered by critics, they speak to issues at the heart of Jarrell’s criticism: the structure of poetry and the question "Is American poetry American?"

One of the outstanding poets of the postwar generation, Jarrell was also celebrated for his extraordinary praise of some underappreciated older and younger poets and for his witty dismissals of current favorites he thought less qualified. Poetry and the Age includes groundbreaking considerations of Walt Whitman and Robert Frost as well as profound appraisals of Wallace Stevens, Marianne Moore, John Crowe Ransom, and William Carlos Williams. His early reviews that established the reputations of Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop are here, beside other enthusiastic discoveries that have withstood the test of time.

i liked the way this started, and i liked the middle parts about the bear and lynx, but otherwise didn't really enjoy this much. it also felt weirdly...colonist, but i'm sure that's because of all i've been reading lately. like the mermaid coming to land and finding it better and superior in every way; it just felt icky to me. but the open hearted stories of living with animals were sweet. i just wish it had all been like that.

A charming book! My husband found this and gave it to me for Christmas. I'm delighted that he did. This would be a wonderful introduction to poetry for children. It is a lovely story of a bat who wiles away his time writing poems about the creatures around him. It has really beautiful illustrations as well. A great starting place for children to begin to write their own poetry.
