  • The Defective Art of Poetryby B. Bennett

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2014; US$ 82.50

    Treating the work of Sappho, Goethe, Blake, Hölderlin, Verlaine, George, Mörike, and Yeats in detail, Bennett makes the provocative argument that the nature of lyric poetry in the West has an element of defectiveness.
