Toward the Open Field: Poets on the Art of Poetry 1800-1950 by Melissa Kwasny, editor

Description:

Poet and novelist Melissa Kwasny brings together prose pieces—essays, letters, declarations, defenses, manifestos, and apologia—by many influential European and American poets. The anthology pieces follows changing notions of what a poem is, what a poet is, why we read a poem, and the development of stylistic and ideological strategies in verse.
