Critical History of French Poetryby Michael Bishop
Perhaps the most difficult task in undertaking a study of nineteenth-century French poetry would be the selection of poets to study. In examining the clearest and most distinct voices of nineteenth-century French poetry, Bishop has shrewdly probed a tradition, come to terms with modern criticisms, imparted truly fresh details of coherence resulting from intimate and informed readings, and joined hands across the ages--all the while preserving (and occasionally solidifying) the exquisite, individual integrity of particular oeuvres.
