Looking back to the Romantics and forward to a number of contemporary poets, she shows how ideas of form have provided the single most important way of accounting for the movements of literary language itself. Offering new readings of Tennyson, Pater, Woolf, Yeats, Stevens, and Graham, among many others, she suggests both that form is the key to the pleasures of the literary text, and that pleasure, as a form of knowledge, is something literary criticism itself needs to embody and convey.
