Critics have said that Emily Dickinson has no heirs, and her poetry represents the zenith of the experimental method she developed in the mid-19th century. Thomas Gardner disagrees.

Regions of unlikeness : explaining contemporary poetry by Thomas Gardner( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Regions of Unlikeness Thomas Gardner explores the ways a number of quite different twentieth-century American poets, including Elizabeth Bishop, John Ashbery, Robert Hass, Jorie Graham, and Michael Palmer, frame their work as taking place within, and being brought to life by, an acknowledgment of the limits of language. Gardner approaches their poetry in light of philosopher Stanley Cavell's remarkably similar engagement with the issues of skepticism and linguistic finitude. The skeptic's refusal to settle for anything less than perfect knowledge of the world, Cavell maintains, amounts to a refusal to accept the fact of human finitude, Gardner argues that both Cavell and the poets he discusses reject skepticism's world-erasing conclusions but nonetheless honor the truth about the limits of knowledge the skepticism keeps alive."--Jacket

John in the company of poets : the Gospel in literary imagination by Thomas Gardner( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Gardner artistically describes Jesus-""the Word made flesh""--As a poem penned by God for the world, and John-author of the Fourth Gospel-as the poem's interpreter. John's structural patterns, repetitions, and narrative interventions invite readers to experience for themselves the beauty of the divine poem. John in the Company of Poets deepens this invitation by re-imagining the biblical text through the eyes of such artists as Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Wendell Berry, and T.S. Eliot, offering a literary reading of the Gospel based upon their powerful poetic replies. Poe
