about this item

Rácz explores the poetics of Larkin, a mainstream British poet of the 1950s and 1960s, showing how --despite the myth of the simple and anti-intellectual poetry that he created of himself--his poetry is pulled together as a cohesive whole by the principles of his poetics as they manifest in his short essays, interviews, reviews, letters, and the poems themselves. His main interest is the mechanism of poetry, how experience can and should become a poem. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
