  • Collected Poems Of Frank O'hara
    1,539 words
    Mark Doty Urbane, ironic, sometimes genuinely celebratory and often wildly funny, O'Hara would allow a realm of material and associations alien to academic verse to pour into his poems: the camp icons of movie stars of the twenties and thirties, the daily landscape of social activity in Manhattan, jazz music, telephone calls from friends; anything seemed ready material for inclusion into the particular order that the moment of composition would call for. Dadaist even in his approach to his own w...
  • Chicago Poems By Carl Sandburg
    317 words
    While reading the Chicago Poems by Carl Sandburg I got the feeling as though I was in the early 1920's. I was able to know what life was like back then and how the people of the time felt about the events that were going on around them. He wrote what he was experiencing during the First World War and how death was realized by this generation for the first time. This work was quite efficient in doing what it needed to do. It is difficult for a poet to convey a single message in a collection of po...

  • H.D. Written Besides A Few Imagist Poems
    3,225 words
    Beyond the Image This study of Hilda Doolittle was prompted by my curiosity about a poet called H.D., who is well anthologized as an Imagist poet. Reading further, I discovered that H.D.'s work was far more extensive than first anticipated. Her part in the Imagist movement was only the beginning of a long career that ended with her death in 1961. It does not seem rational for a poet's personae to be frozen in the initial success of a specific genre of poems; indeed, excellent pieces written at t...
