Essays, Reviews, Profiles 1970-1992
William O'Rourke - Author

"Though unabashedly literary, O'Rourke's primary concerns--freedom, war, work, and religion--are intensely American. O'Rourke earns the respect of his readers through his superb phrasing, his rigorous thinking and his consistently sound values. As a general reader I trust what he has to tell me because his writing is so gracefully persuasive. If O'Rourke were a lawyer, I'd want him to represent me in court; if he were a carpenter, I'd want him...(Read More)
 
 
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge (November 1993)
Don Byrd - Author

"Don Byrd's book presents postmodernism as a continuation of the metaphysical skeptical tradition, reaching its dead end with deconstruction.

Spariosu, The University of Georgia

"This is an important, provocative book. At a time when poetics--especially that of the dif...(Read More)

Poems and Centos From Lines in Emily Dickinson's Letters

"The book insists that we reintegrate our experience of poetry and this poet, Emily Dickinson. The fusion of art--superb original poetry--with deeply informed criticism is the book's outstanding characteristic. It is beautifully written by all hands." -- H. R. Coursen, Bowdoin College

Buried in Emily Dickinson's letters are many lines that are stunningly beautiful, as beautiful as any to be found in her poems. Lewis Turco has taken some of...(Read More)

The Art of John Gardner (October 1992)
Instruction and Exploration
Per Winther - Author

"There is a great deal to like about this work. First, it takes an honest and forthright stance in regard to On Moral Fiction. Second, Winther provides the philosophical background--Darwin, Whitehead, Collingwood, Blanshard, and Croce--to help us see the argument Gardner was trying to develop in On Moral Fiction. Third, Winther, more than any other scholar, has investigated Gardner's other critical and scholarly writings on medieval...(Read More)
