"Woodman and Feeney have succeeded admirably...Scholars and advanced students will find in this collection of essays a stimulating reminder that poetry, like all language, is situated both in the world of definite time and place and in the universe of poetry and other literature." - Lee T. Pearcy, The Episcopal Academy, Merion, PA
