    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2013; Not Available

  • Revising Lifeby Susan R. Van Dyne

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    Choice '[Examines] Plath's twin goals of becoming a famous poet and a perfect mother. . . . This book's main points are clearly and forcefully argued: that both poems and babies require 'struggle, pain, endless labor, and . . . fears of monstrous offspring' and that, in the end, Plath ran out of the resources necessary to produce both. Often maligned... more...

  • Counter-revolution of the Wordby Alan Filreis

    The University of North Carolina Press 2012; US$ 29.99

    During the Cold War an unlikely coalition of poets, editors, and politicians converged in an attempt to discredit--if not destroy--the American modernist avant-garde.

    With essays by 13 leading scholars, this collection establishes the grounds for a new kind of poetics that considers the poetry book itself -- the concept and the material fact -- as an object of interpretation. The authors argue that the decisions poets make about the presentation of their works play a meaningful role in the poetic process and therefore... more...

  • The Work of Self-Representationby Ivy Schweitzer

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    In The Work of Self-Representation Ivy Schweitzer examines early American poetry through the critical lens of gender.
