Pressestimmen"This book's focus stays strongly on target throughout, opening up ways of reading this demanding poetry. I recommend it highly." American Literature "I recommend DuPlessis's book for the wonderful light it shines on how some poets grappled, in the very texture of their writing, with some of the central political issues of Modernism." Rain Taxi "the book is excitingly clear in its social investments, and offers a means for responsibilty bodying forth those investments in original dense, richly textured, and highly plausible readings."
