Style and authenticity in postmodern poetry by Jonathan Holden( Book )

9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fate of American poetry by Jonathan Holden( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of Holden's splendid new book will be rewarded by his summary of the latest battle: neo-formalists versus post-(post?)-modernists versus creative writing programs versus whatever. The decline of modernism is also examined. Holden rightly chastises those who decry the institutionalization of poetry; details the current state of lyric, narrative, and political poetry; and gives sensitive, intelligent readings of works by new and established poets. An important book by a solid poet and critic. Highly recommended. --Vincent D. Balitas

The old formalism : character in contemporary American poetry by Jonathan Holden( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part 1 of The Old Formalism, "The Practice," is a close study of some of the conventions and developments in contemporary American poetry. In "Personae," the second part, he gives a studied reading of a group of several admired poets." "This book takes a decided stand in the ongoing debate of the past two decades about the relationship of American poetry to American culture. In an age when image dominates word, and the business of poetry is nearly as celebrity - laden as Hollywood, Holden takes us past the media glitz, backstage where the poems are waiting to be read."--Jacket
