BeschreibungTaken from throughout Mills's career, the essays collected in this volume delve into the work of such influential writers as Wallace Stevens, Denise Levertov, Samuel Beckett, Galway Kinnell, Edith Sitwell, Theodore Roethke, Karl Shapiro, Richard Wilbur, Isabella Gardener, James Wright, David Ignatow, Donald Hall, Robert Bly, Philip Levine, and Stanley Kunitz. Mills examines how the personal element informs the works of these writers and enables them "to speak to us, without impediment, from the deep center of a personal engagement with existence."
PortraitRalph J. Mills Jr. was an American poet and critic. A uniquely Chicago voice, his poetry was in the objectivist style, dependent on evocative natural imagery, presented in terse but beautifully layered poems.
Pressestimmen"The relationship, often startling, between observation and projection in these poems is crucial. It gives us poems of great human authenticity without the least intellectual pretension--in short, wonderful poems."
