Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There are few critics we are drawn to not only for insight into their particular enthusiasm of the moment but also for the sheer joy of watching their intelligence worry this text or that. . . . For our area, Marjorie Perloff is quickly joining [these] ranks. . . . The Dance of the Intellect continues the project begun by Perloff in The Poetics of Indeterminacy, examination of the 'other' (dare we yet say primary) tradition in American poetry." —Lee Bartlett, American Literary Scholarship
