Critical survey of poetry : English language series
Critical survey of poetry : English language series
by:Jason, Phillip K.,
Book News eschews gushing, but this is an incredible reference work at a reasonable price. It is cited in Guide to Reference Books and is suitable for high school and university libraries. The new edition has 20 percent new material, 20 percent revised, and some 740 heavily revised or new essay-bibliographies. It combines published essays in the Critical Survey of Poetry from the Foreign Language Series (1984), the Supplement (1987), and the English Language Series, Revised Edition (1992), and includes 117 poets not previously covered. Poets range from the classic tradition (Ovid and Pindar) to the contemporary era (Li-Young Lee and Martin Espada). Of the 698 poets, there are 301 reflecting a diverse US populace, 195 anglophones from other nations, and the rest from all over the globe. Poet-essays in volumes 1-7 are 2,000 words or longer. Volume 8 contains 700 pages of essays on seven strands of criticism and theory, 45 poetries from around the world (e.g. Croatian, Tibetan, and English by century), research tools (awards, poetical terms, chronology etc.), and indexes (geography, category, and subject).
