Reviews

"This volume is representative of his best work...Jarrell was not only a great critic of poetry, he was a great critic of criticism."--"The New York Times Book Review"[Jarrell's essays are] a phenomenon that flows, coruscates, sings and revitalizes."-- Brad Leithauser"He was a kind of conscience of poetry...His influence on the poetry of his time has yet to be fathomed: it worked through his own poems, his published criticism, his teaching, his involvement with the work of his friends. For many of us, if asked that old question: "To what or whom do you address your poems?" the truthful answer would be: "To the mind of Randall Jarrell."-- Adrienne Rich"One cannot overpraise this substantial volume. These essays stand among the finest writing about literature ever done in America."--"Washington Post Book World
