A main video presentation accompanied by seventeen vignettes128016ocn025676449book19910.29Gioia, DanaCan poetry matter?Criticism, interpretation, etcWhen Dana Gioia's essay "Can Poetry Matter?" appeared in the Atlantic in 1991, it sparked a firestorm of debate and discussion over the role of the poet in today's world - a dialogue in which Gioia participated on radio, television, and in print. One of the more stimulating and provocative figures on our literary horizon, and the author of two widely praised books of poems, Gioia is also an essayist of wide renown. This collection of essays demonstrates that Gioia's talents do not lie in the area of controversy alone. Can Poetry Matter? is an old-fashioned sort of literary book, part literary criticism, part social commentary, and part plain good reading. Addressing such subjects as the poet as businessman and New Formalism as the real avant-garde, it also includes pieces on the life and work of such diverse figures as Robinson Jeffers, Weldon Kees, Robert Bly, and Wallace Stevens+-+1226240006104345ocn039093521book19950.32Kennedy, X.

"What happens to poetry in a culture that no longer depends on books? Dana Gioia dismisses the standard cliches about poetry's precarious place in a society transformed by electronic media.

Together, various layers of meaning form a genealogy of expression. In this paper, I articulate a theory of expression genealogy, using the song cycle Becoming a Redwood, poems by Dana Gioia (b.1950) and music by Lori Laitman (b. 1955). I argue that a rich and credible performance depends upon awareness of this genealogy. I investigate the process of transforming Gioia's poetry into art song and how knowledge of that process informs performance and listener response. The study provides a methodology for performance that may be applied to other vocal music. To demonstrate the transformation of meaning in the multi-layered creative process, I employ several methods, including personal interviews with the composer and the poet, close readings of the four poems, and analysis of the musical settings."--Abstract from author supplied metadata11ocn122571603mix0.47The Reaper recordsRecords pertain to the editorial process of THE REAPER, its production, finiancial management, and other miscellaneous business, as well as the literary interests and opinions of its editors and contributing authors.
