The selected letters of Robert Creeley by Robert Creeley( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Robert Creeley is one of the most celebrated and influential of the postwar American poets. His Selected Letters, covering the years 1945-2005 are a foundational document in the recent history of North American letters. Through his engagements with mentors such as William Carlos Williams and Ezra Pound; peers such as Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Denise Levertov, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac and mentees such as Charles Bernstein, Anselm Berrigan, Ed Dorn, Susan Howe, and Tom Raworth, Creeley helped forge a new poetry that re-imagined writing for his and subsequent generations. A stylist of the highest order, Creeley's letters carry the clear mark of consummate literary artistry and document the life, work, and times of one of our greatest writers"--
Onward : contemporary poetry and poetics ( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Onward: Contemporary Poetry and Poetics is an anthology of statements on poetics by twenty contemporary North American poets, along with selections from their poetry. The poets collected here represent the forefront of engaged, experimental poetic practice and their statements vary from the extended essay form to collage assemblages of various prose and poetically charged forms. These explorations of poetics lead to intersections of thought and practice, both among themselves, and with other recently published poetry anthologies

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Forces in modern & postmodern poetry by Albert Cook( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Forces in Modern and Postmodern Poetry examines the works of classic authors in the modern and postmodern literary tradition, including Stephane Mallarme, Wallace Stevens, Samuel Beckett, Gertrude Stein, Charles Olson, Paul Celan, Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Louis Zukofsky, and John Ashbery, all from a comparative perspective. The concepts, modern and postmodern, are not used to provide definitive answers but to raise questions concerning the status of representation, issues of the self, and the use of imagery and musical invention. The wide range of the study is matched by the richly detailed analysis of specific poetic texts from an author noted for the scope and acuity of his attention to modern poetry in all its varied forms."--BOOK JACKET
Detecting detection : international perspectives on the uses of a plot by Deborah Shaller( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We indulge our fascination with detection in many ways, only some of which occur in the detective story. In fact, modern fiction regularly uses elements of a detective narrative to tell another story altogether, to engage characters, narrators, and readers with questions of identity, with examinations of moral and ethical reasoning, with critiques of social and political injustices, and with the metaphysics of meaning itself. Detective plots cross cultural and national boundaries and occur in different ways and different genres. Taken together, they suggest important contemporary understanding
