Demonstrating a poet's imaginative ear and a critic's range of concern, John Hollander here writes about the qmelodious guileq with which poetry speaks to us. Through analysis of formal and rhetorical patterns in examples chosen from the whole spectrum of English and American poetry, Hollander describes how poems frame self'reflexive parables in order to represent realms beyond themselves. qJohn Hollander, himself a fine poet, is such a generalist; and Melodious Guile, to my mind the best of his critical books, takes its place-along with Donald Davie's Articulate Energy and Winifred Nowottny's The Language Poets Use-among the very few enjoyable and enriching studies of how poetry works.q-Alastair Fowler, London Review of BooksDemonstrating a poeta#39;s imaginative ear and a critica#39;s range of concern, John Hollander here writes about the aquot;melodious guileaquot; with which poetry speaks to us.
