Description
Described by the New York Review of Books as "probably the greatest living scholar and editor of modern English-language poetry ... a critic of unrivaled authority," humanities professor Christopher Ricks here looks at three outstanding poets of the late 20th century—Geoffrey Hill, Anthony Hecht, and Robert Lowell—by examining their relation to their predecessors T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. "Opposition is true Friendship," William Blake believed, or at any rate hoped, and Hill, Hecht, and Lowell demonstrate many kinds of friendship with Eliot and Pound—adversarial, artistic, and personal—as they learn from and then try to free themselves from their legacy.

"The work is not only original and the scholarship provocative and sound, but one feels in the company of the Circle of Philosophers, comforted by this Virgilian guide who is not only knowledgeable, but—even better—has such a refined sense of humor, wit, and—most rare of gifts—a humanistic pathos that rings down the ages."—Paul Mariani
