Texte du rabat

"This is a powerful, elegant, and most original study that moves across and through the range of English and American verse. . . . What is so impressive, too, about this book is that the author's thought about the nature and structure and function of titles is rooted in, and leads to, wonderfully illuminating readings of the poems in question."--John Hollander, Yale University "There hasn't been an adequate history of the business of poetic titling until this new book by Ferry, and it is stimulating and welcome. . . .This is an indispensable hornbook. Anne Ferry has written the last word on the first words on any poem."--Partisan Review



Résumé
The title of a poem is often seen as no more than a convenient means of reference. But in shorter lyric poems the title can often be as long as a line of verse, and as allusive. This is a theoretical, critical, and historical exploration of the traditions for titling shorter English poems.
