Modernist Women Poets: An Anthology (Inglés) Tapa dura – 5 abr 2014
Descripción del producto
"Reintroducing the early 20th century through the poetry of 16 women--some famous, some nearly unknown--coeditors Hass (a former U.S. Poet Laureate) and Ebenkamp have produced that rare, valuable thing: a volume that could be at once a resource for educators, and a fine entree for the general reader. The great women of modernism--Gertrude Stein, H. D., Marianne Moore--are hardly news, but they are rarely encountered together in such concentration. Hass's substantial afterword doubles as a terrific introduction to modernism in general; the poet C. D. Wright contributes a briefer foreword, and well-chosen prose concludes the whole."

NIGHTWOOD, Laura Riding as Robert Graves's muse and the inspiration behind THE WHITE GODDESS, Amy Lowell as an early supporter of male Modernist writers. The other ten poets are new to me, but being able to read and absorb a generous number of poems by each one has not only raised them to visibility but also given me the names of more literary pioneers who helped humanity cross the threshold of the 20th century, that "Brave New World" in which we are still enmeshed in the early 21st century.
I cannot claim that all of the poems struck as being GREAT POEMS, but it is still too early for such a blanket assessment. I will have to re-read the poems, let them dwell in my imagination for a spell, then distribute them (somehow, someway} to other readers for their assessment. Only then will I be prepared to issue a general statement - if that is necessary for you, fellow reader. Perhaps it is enough that we read, mull over and share these poems the way we would with any poems and see how they can help us nudge our personal lives forward.
Hass gives too much attention to Stein (with nearly 72 pages), and her work,
at one time considered to be cutting edge, simply does not hold up for this reader,
as it takes up a lot of space with her nearly pointless ramblings.
Being that I am a Poet, I received my hardcover copy as a gift,
and I would advise to not by this expensive copy, instead, go for a used paperback.
