Book Description: One of our foremost commentators examines the work of a broad range of English, Irish, and American poets. Helen Vendler’s essays, book reviews, and occasional prose from the past two decades, taken together, are an eloquent plea for the centrality—in humanistic study and modern culture—of poetry’s subversive, sustaining, and demanding legacy.

Book Description: “One of the great American poets . . . he sounds like nobody else.”—Helen Vendler “So I said I am Ezra / and the wind whipped my throat / gaming for the sounds of my voice. . . .” So begins one of the most remarkable oeuvres in the history of American poetry. The Complete Poems of A. R. Ammons, Volume I presents the first half of Archie Randolph Ammons’s long career, including the complete texts of his three book-length poems from that period: the verse diary Tape for the Turn of the Year, the Bollingen Prize–winning Sphere: The Form of a Motion, and the daring kaleidoscope of The Snow Poems, which late in life Ammons said of all his long poems was his favorite. Here are many of Ammons’s most widely celebrated lyrics and meditations, including “Corsons Inlet,” “Still,” “Gravelly Run,” and “The City Limits.” Others are more directly inspired by his roots in the rural south, among them “Nelly Myers,” “Silver,” and “Mule Song.” Here too are conversations with mountains (as in “Classic” and “Mountain Talk”) and exchanges with the wind (“The Wide Land” and “Mansion”), materialist explanations of reality (“Mechanism” and “Catalyst”) and prayers (such as the several poems titled “Hymn”). A poet drawn to theorizing about poetry, Ammons offers both sophisticated discussions of the art (as in “Poetics” and “Essay on Poetics”) and disarming assurance: “I believe in fun.” The text of each poem has been established after careful consideration of Ammons’s manuscripts and other prepublication materials. Endnotes detail the poems’ composition and publication histories, and also helpfully annotate references made within the poems. This volume confirms Richard Howard’s judgment: “Here was a great poet, surely one of the largest to speak among us.”

Book Description: Offering a comprehensive view of the South's literary landscape, past and present, this volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture celebrates the region's ever-flourishing literary culture and recognizes the ongoing evolution of the southern literary canon. As new writers draw upon and reshape previous traditions, southern literature has broadened and deepened its connections not just to the American literary mainstream but also to world literatures--a development thoughtfully explored in the essays here. Greatly expanding the content of the literature section in the original Encyclopedia, this volume includes 31 thematic essays addressing major genres of literature; theoretical categories, such as regionalism, the southern gothic, and agrarianism; and themes in southern writing, such as food, religion, and sexuality. Most striking is the fivefold increase in the number of biographical entries, which introduce southern novelists, playwrights, poets, and critics. Special attention is given to contemporary writers and other individuals who have not been widely covered in previous scholarship.

Book Description: "The Flapdoodle Follies" is a celebration of words. Sometimes archaic, perhaps a bit bizarre - but always beautiful - words have a power to transport or transform, to tickle and tease, and to terrify. Strung together in this way or that, a melody emerges, sometimes bubbling along, sometimes crashing with vicious, thunderous force; the result need not always be pleasant to be enjoyable. Words also have the power to inspire our imaginations, to set us off on a journey of reflection and exploration or on a madcap adventure into the unknown. Without a preconceived story to tell, the author lets the words themselves define the contours of the pieces. The result is collection of absurdist poetry, fantastical tales, and dark reflection. Sometimes playful, sometimes despairing, the author follows the stream of consciousness inspired by these words wherever it takes him, creating pieces that, somehow, in attempting to be unfocused, open, and direct, end up being very focused and true.
