Six modernist moments in poetry by David Young( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Along with the four poems written in English, the two non-English poems are presented and discussed in Young's own translations. He describes the provenance of each of the six poems, puts it in the context of its time and the poet's career, and surrounds it with references to other poems that are quoted generously. In this way, each poem is not only fully explicated but also presented as a kind of preeminent example representing other poems of its type. Combining close reading with contextual discussion, this book is a significant contribution to the fields of poetry and modernism."--Jacket
