Reviews


"Altieri's powerful readings [are] excellent analyses of poems by Oppen and Bishop, as well as by a host of others, [that] offer insights both into the details of the texts and the wider intellectual issues at stake, while the book's differing vocations come together powerfully when it analyses the self-projections of 'Prufrock.'" (Year's Work in English Studies, November 2008)

"Altieri is thoroughly captivating, especially when his precise, synthetic, and innovative interpretations focus on beloved poets such as T.S. Eliot, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, W.H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop and John Ashbery."
(The Wallace Stevens Journal)
