Product Description

Review

"In her discussions of infant language acquisition, but more broadly in her portrayal of frames by which we separate poems from non-poems, Blasing has written a smart book that other critics will use, even critics with different attitudes toward individual poets and their poems."--Stephen Burt, Modern Philology

From the Back Cover

"This is a splendid book, one of the best on the lyric that I have ever read, combining a rich and original theoretical account with chapters on four major twentieth-century American poets. Blasing's take on the lyric is convincing and original."--Jonathan Culler, Cornell University
