With this book, the author has written as much a history of a poet's mind as a book of criticism. As the essays eddy and swirl among their objects of scrutiny, we feel as much the moods of the poet, his arguments with his subjects, as a mind finely tracking its own needs and beliefs. Sometimes fierce, sometimes stubborn, always passionate and deeply informed, Hammil's marriage of conviction and clear headed scholarship reminds us of the older, much missed, styles of criticism where one expected to be challenged, argued with, as well as informed by strongly held beliefs......
