“An excellent collection of essays on Pulitzer Prize winning poet Jorie Graham that really opens the field, presenting extraordinarily fine initial mappings of her writing.”—Eileen Gregory, author of H. D. and Hellenism
Jorie Graham: Essays on the Poetryby Thomas Gardner
American scholars of literature examine the work of American poet Graham (b. 1951), mostly in reviews and articles reprinted since 1992, but also in some original essays. In addition to reviewing particular collections such as Materialism, The Errancy, Swarm, and Never; they explore such aspects as the moment of excess, iconoclasm, her big hunger, her place, gender and ethical subjectivity, her poems of adolescence, and the beginnings of a lexicon.
