The poetry of Louise Glück a thematic introduction by Daniel Morris ( )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Explores Glück's utilization of masks of characters from history, the Bible, and fairy tales, discussing the persistent themes and transitional tone of her poetry through close reading of her early work, Firstborn; through the book-length sequences Ararat, Meadowlands, and The Wild Iris; to her latest, including Vita Nova and Averno"--Provided by publisher
Radical poetics and secular Jewish culture by Stephen Miller ( )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kafka's quip--paradoxical, self-questioning, ironic--highlights vividly some of the key issues of identity and self-representation for Jewish writers in the 20th century. No group of writers better represents the problems of Jewish identity than Jewish poets writing in the American modernist tradition--specifically secular Jews: those disdainful or suspicious of organized religion, yet forever shaped by those traditions. This collection of essays is the first to address this often obscured dimension of modern and contemporary poetry: the secular Jewish dimension. Editors Daniel Morris and Steph
The writings of William Carlos Williams : publicity for the self by Daniel Morris ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Writings of William Carlos Williams, Daniel Morris examines the previously neglected fiction written throughout Williams's career to explore the extreme shift in his poetry from the impersonal early lyrics to Paterson, the ultimate celebration of the poet as modernist cultural hero. With close textual analyses of Williams's writing in a variety of genres, including lyrics, short stories, novels, essays, and his epic poem, Morris demonstrates that Williams consciously shaped his identity as a public writer able to provide an unacknowledged social group with the dignity of appearance in distinguished classes of representation such as the modern poem

After Weegee : essays on contemporary Jewish American photographers by Daniel Morris ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Examining a range of styles from the gritty vernacular sensibility of Weegee (Arthur Fellig) to the glitzy theatricality of Annie Leibovitz, Morris takes a thoughtful look at ten American photographers, exploring the artists' often ambivalent relationships to their Jewish backgrounds. Going against the grain of most criticism on the subject, Morris argues that it is difficult to label Jewish American photographers as unequivocal "outsiders" or "insiders" with respect to mainstream American culture. He shows it is equally difficult to assign a characteristic style to such a varied group whose backgrounds range from self-taught photographers to those trained in art school. In eclectic ways, however, the contemporary photographers highlighted in After Weegee carry on the social justice and documentary tradition associated with Sid Grossman, Aaron Siskind, and the primarily Jewish Photo League of the 1930s by chronicling the downside of the Reagan revolution of the 1980s."

Lyric encounters : essays on American poetry from Lazarus and Frost to Ortiz Cofer and Alexie by Daniel Morris ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A new survey of twentieth-century U.S. poetry that places a special emphasis on poets who have put lyric poetry in dialogue with other forms of creative expression, including modern art, the novel, jazz, memoir, and letters. Contesting readings of twentieth-century American poetry as hermetic and narcissistic, Morris interprets the lyric as a scene of instruction and thus as a public-oriented genre. American poets from Robert Frost to Sherman Alexie bring aesthetics to bear on an exchange that asks readers to think carefully about the ethical demands of reading texts as a reflection of how we

Reading texts, reading lives : essays in the tradition of humanistic cultural criticism in honor of Daniel R. Schwarz ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Our culture attempts to separate competing ideological factions by denying relationships between multiple perspectives and influences outside of one's own narrow interpretive community. The distinguished essayists in this volume find Daniel R. Schwarz's pluralistic, self-questioning approach to what he calls "reading texts and reading lives" quite relevant to the current historical moment and political situation. A legendary scholar of modernist literature, Schwarz's critical principles are a healthy corrective to cultural hubris. The essayists treat works ranging from fictions by Joyce, Conrad, Morrison, and Woolf to the poetry to Yeats, to Holocaust literature, to the environmental writings of Wendell Berry, to the photographs of Lee Friedlander. The authors focus on different works, but they follow Schwarz in stressing formal elements most often associated with traditional realism while keeping an eye on historical and author-centered approaches. The essayists also follow Schwarz in their emphasis on narrative cohesion and in how they look for signs of agency among characters who possess the will to alter their fate, even in a seemingly random universe such as the one depicted by Conrad. Readers with eyes to ethics and aesthetics, they follow Schwarz in encouraging a values-centered approach that leaves room for the reader to address the ways in which reading a text correlates to the reader's ability to find meaning and value in experience outside the text. Like Schwarz, the essays look for intentionality of authorial meaning (rather than something called an "author function") as well as for the relationship between lived experience and the imagined world of the literary work (rather than the endless semiotic play of an ultimately indecipherable text)."--Publisher's website
