Book review

The Prospect of Lyric, edited by Bainard Cowan Reading a great lyric poem we know that lyric is more than a convention, that it speaks of an encounter of genuine depth. But what is the terrain of that encounter? The fourth in the Genres of Literature series enters into the heart of the lyric experience, with General Editor Louise Cowan analyzing the lyric impulse, its ontological ground, and its relation to the life of a culture in her Introduction to the volume. The following sixteen essays examine key poets and texts, from Biblical and Greek antiquity through the pinnacles of the English lyric and on to the modern American and Caribbean world, ending with a frank critique of the conditions for poetry in contemporary culture by poet Frederick Turner. Authors include: Daniel Russ, Karl Maurer, Gregory Roper, Scott F. Crider, Robert Alexander, Louise Cowan, Anna Priddy, Bernadette Waterman Ward, Glenn Arbery, Seemee Ali, Robert Scott Dupree, Larry Allums, Claudia Allums, Mary Di Lucia, Bainard Cowan, and Frederick Turner.
