“Denise Levertov fulfills the eternal mission of the true Poet: to be a receptacle of Divine Grace and a 'spendor of that Grace to humanity.'” —World Literature Today Denise Levertov's New & Selected Essays gathers three decades' worth of the poet's most important critical statements. Her subjects are various––poetics, the imagination, politics, spirituality, other writers––and her approach independent minded and richly complex. Here in a single volume are recent essays exploring new ground broken by Levertov in the past decade as well as the finest and most useful prose pieces from The Poet in the World (1973) and Light Up the Cave (1981). This is a book to read and reread. With their combination of sensitivity and practicality, the New & Selected Essays will prove enormously helpful to the writer and reader of poetry. As Kirkus Reviews remarked about her prose: "This is humanism in its true sense––her attitude as evidenced (not described) by her writing is such that the reader cannot help but experience life, at least temporarily, with more intensity, joy, and imagination."

Since the late 1950s Stan Brakhage has been in the forefront of independent filmmaking. His body of work — some seventy hours — is one of the largest of any filmmaker in the history of cinema, and one of the most diverse. Probably the most widely quoted experimental filmmaker in history, his films typify the independent cinema. Until now, despite well-deserved acclaim, there has been no comprehensive study of Brakhage’s oeuvre. The Films of Stan Brakhage in the American Tradition fills this void. R. Bruce Elder delineates the aesthetic parallels between Brakhage’s films and a broad spectrum of American art from the 1920s through the 1960s. This book is certain to stir the passions of those interested in artistic critique and interpretation in its broadest terms.

This Book Fulfils The Difficult Task Of Quickening, And Elucidating, Fortifying And Enlarging The Poetry Of Two Important Poets Of Our Time: Robert Frost And William Carlos Williams. It Puts Their Creative Act Under Scrutiny By The Common Parameter Of A Critical Canon, Aiming To Place Them As Poets At A Vantage Point Where The Idea Of Man Speaking Out On Behalf Of Man Can Find Its True And Free Expression.Written In A Lucid Style, And With A Content That Remain A Landmark In American Studies By An Indian Academic, The Book Does Also Privilege A Deeper Understanding Of American Poetry In General While Problematizing Its Inherent Opposition Between The Egocentric As Against The Theocentric, Man Without History As Against History Without Man, The Antinomian As Against The Orthodox, Personality As Against Culture And The Adamic As Against The Mythic.

William Carlos Williams (1883–1963) emerged alongside Pound, Eliot, Stevens, Frost, and Yeats as one of the foremost poets of the 20th century. Paterson, Williams's epic masterpiece, raised everyday American speech to the highest levels of poetic imagination. A finalist for the national Book Award and a New York Times Notable Book, William Carlos Williams: A New World Naked is a remarkable, rich blend of art and scholarship. From a small-town doctor who delivered more than 3,000 babies to an extraordinary revolutionary, Paul Mariani unfolds Williams' life and times while simultaneously letting the reader inside the poet's mind and language in this definitive masterwork.
