History, Passion, Freedom, Death, and Hope

Prose about Poetry
By Kelly   Cherry
Award-winning poet Kelly Cherry includes advice to young poets and perceptive discussions of contemporary poetry and poetics in this rich new collection of prose about poetry. American poet Robert Wallace writes: Poet, philosopher, novelist, translator, reviewer, Kelly Cherry is that rare thingan American woman of letters. In this stunning compilation of her essays on the art of poetry . . . with grace, intelligence, eloquence, and above all music, she provides both a welcome road map to the poetry of the past half century and a companionable guide book to the major ideas of form and content that have shaped the contemporary aesthetic . . . Brilliant, original, these pieces sing; they dance; they levitate off the page.
