This book combines theoretical essays, interviews, and symposia responses with shorter pieces on a variety of postwar English-language poets (from Oppen, Ashbery, and Howe to younger contemporaries). Working from a foundation in the specifics of current practice that more overarching theory often ignores, Andrews challenges and extends the limitations of traditional literary criticism.
