The Final Sculpture: Public Monuments and Modern Poets

by Michael North
 
This book treats an important but neglected metaphor in recent poetry--that of the public monument. Michael North uses the monument, chosen by the poets themselves as an analogy for the poem, to address the problem of the role of the writer in this century, balancing the public aspirations of modern poets against the constraints of modernist aesthetics.
