I found some great books recently at the UofU’s book sale. I plan on reading these books over the summer and thought I’d make a list of them for my readers.
The POETRY Anthology 1912-1977 (Sixty-Five Years of America’s Most Distinguished Verse Magazine) Edited by Daryl Hine and Joseph Parisi
Poets on Poetry Edited, with an Introduction, by Charles Norman
The Contemporary Poet as Artist and Critic eight symposia Edited by Anthony Ostroff
(Twentieth Century Views) Yeats: A collection of Critical Essays Edited by John Unterecker
(Twentieth Century Views) T.S. Eliot: A collection of Critical Essays Edited by Hugh Kenner
Loot at the Harlequins! By Vladimir Nabokov
Vladimir Nabokov: Selected Letters 1940-1977 Edited by Dmitri Nabokov and Matthew J. Bruccoli
I subscribe and get POETRY magazine, and when I found the anthology (listed above) I was elated!
I am a big fan of reading Critical Essays, especially when I am really familiar with most of the writer’s works. The ‘Twentieth Century View’ books in particular are my favorites. I recently read one on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s works and it was pretty amazing.
I am a lover of Vladimir Nabokov and have been for a long time now. I always find his books to be kind of pricey in local bookstores so when I found these two books (in brand new condition) for $1 each I was super stoked!
If I finish any of these soon and feel like doing a short response/reflection, I will post one under the ‘Poetry’ tab.
If you are reading this Thank You for taking time out of your day to read my writing! I hope you return in the future!
