What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Poetry and the Public is a welcome addition to a growing but still small body of revisionist studies of 20th century poetics that employ some version of New Historicist and cultural studies methods to make new areas of poetic activity, beyond the received high modernist canon, available for critical scrutiny."—Alan Golding, author of From Outlaw to Classic: Canons in American Poetry

"Poetry and the Public brings poetry and a historically informed American studies into productive dialogue to show that poetry has played as significant a role in shaping national identity and public culture as any other literary or textual art."—Maria Damon, author of The Dark End of the Street
