American Writers, Supplement XV By Jay Parini Publication Date: 2008-11-01 ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0684313065 ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780684313061
In this fifteenth volume of American Writers Supplements, we offer eighteen articles on American writers of fiction, drama (including film, and poetry; they are all accomplished writers who have displayed many of the virtues, yet none of them has yet been featured in this series. These articles should prove helpful to readers who wish to dig more thoroughly into the work of these writers, so that they can see how each—in his or her own way—has added something of great value to American culture. Volume Fifteen treats a wide range of authors from the past and present. The main focus of this volume is poetry, and twelve poets considered in this collection: Frank Bidart, Witter Bynner, Peter Everwine, Carol Frost, Dana Gioia, Weldon Kees, X. J. Kennedy, Kenneth Koch, Li-Young Lee, Gjertrud Schnackenberg, Louis Untermeyer, and C. D. Wright. Most of these are contemporary, although Bynner, Kees, and Untermeyer belong to the first half of the twentieth century.
