Language: English . Brand New Book. A master of the lyric, Alfred Corn is also adept at working in forms, and has published several books featuring long poetic sequences, including a book-length narrative poem modeled on Dante s Divine Comedy . Alfred Corn is at once one of the most learned and the most accessible of contemporary poets, whose work demonstrates a Whitmanesque inclusiveness of myriad aspects of contemporary life, while deploying a formidable prosodic expertise in received and invented forms and meters. Corn is also a polymath, with knowledge and interests extending to music, theater, and the graphic arts. Even though the essays gathered here are all literary in nature, a knowledge of history, of religion, and of the arts underpins every piece, producing a breadth of scope that is refreshing and unpredictable.The essays range from the poet/critic s personal, epistolary encounter with Flannery O Connor, to his reassessment of Auden s Christmas oratorio, to his lively look at the Canterbury Tales and his retrospective consideration of Wordsworth. While many such essay collections limit themselves to the modern and contemporary periods, Corn s enthusiasm for Chaucer and Keats is as fresh and inquisitive as that which he holds for Bishop, Thomas Gunn, or Derek Mahon. Corn s engaging, probing pieces will have the inevitable effect of sending the reader back to the original texts with new insights and new questions. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780472070503
