Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN POETRY by Ralph J. Mills, Jr. The essays collected in this volume delve into the work of such influential writers as Denise Levertov, Theodore Roethke, Karl Shapiro, Richard Wilbur, Isabella Gardner, James Wright, Stanley Kunitz, Anne Sexton et al (Al who?). 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." Ralph J. Mills, Jr. is a significant figure in contemporary poetry for his work as a poet, critic, and professor. His poetry collections include Living with Distance, A Window in Air, and March Light, which received the Carl Sandburg Award. He also edited the selected prose and letters of Theodore Roethke. From 1962 to 1965 he served as Assistant Professor and Associate Chairman of the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago. He is professor emeritus of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago. "Ralph Mills has the clearest of clear eyes, and knows exactly how to translate what is seen into what can be heard, so that we can share to an almost uncanny degree that crystalline vision."--Denise Levertov You are bidding on the only stated Random Edition from 1965. Other than a back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris) and a page-split (p.100) could use some tape, the book is in very good condition. There are no rips, tears, etc. (see photo).
