Effluences from the Sacred Caves: More Selected Essays and Reviews

ISBN: 0472063499
Ann Arbor, MI: The University of Michigan Press, 1983. First Edition. Softcover. "The contribution of Hayden Carruth to literary theory lies principally in the sector of the relationship between art and life. Over the past thirty years, working partly from a base in secular existentialist thought and partly from his own experience as a working poet, he has trained his sights on the procedures of human imagination and the responsibilities of the artist. Most of his writing has been in scattered essays and reviews, many hundreds of them, from which the generous selection in Effluences from the Sacred Caves has been taken." (from back cover) A collection of densely learned & insightful short pieces by Hayden Carruth (1921-2008), the acclaimed & very prolific poet & literary critic. Among the many poets discussed, analyzed & reviewed are Robert Frost & Archibald MacLeish. This volume is the sequel to Working Papers: Selected Essays and Reviews (1982). Published by The University of Michigan Press right here in our hometown of Ann Arbor, part of its Poets on Poetry series, whose General Editor & one of its authors was the late, esteemed poet Donald Hall. Trade-format softcover original, first edition, first printing as indicated in copyright page. An essential Carruth collectible for the poetry scholar. In very fine condition with only a tiny amount of wear at edges & corners of front, back covers & esp. spine; small, light bump-creases at upper corners of about last half of page leaves through upper left corner of back cover; otherwise all but mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #3182]
