Overview

On Mount Vision: Forms of the Sacred in Contemporary American Poetry by Norman Finkelstein

In On Mount Vision, Norman Finkelstein displays how the sacred has remained a basic concern of contemporary experimental poets in an increasingly secular age by charting the wandering, together and apart, of poetry and belief. Finkelstein's discussions of Emerson, Whitman, and Eliot seamlessly yield to close readings of Robert Duncan, Jack Spicer, Ronald Johnson, Michael Palmer, Susan Howe, Nathaniel Mackey, and Armand Schwerner in a convincing reminder of why the sacred remains crucial to our understanding of postmodern American poetry.
