Axes: Willa Cather and William Faulkner

Axes lines the intimate courting among the texts released by means of Willa Cather and William Faulkner among 1922 and 1962. while these texts are juxtaposed and tested rigorously, the 2 writers appear intensely aware of, and attentive to, every one other’s paintings. in truth, either at some point soon seem to have caricatured or parodied the opposite in print.

The resistance to poetry

Poems encourage our belief, argues James Longenbach during this bracing paintings, simply because they do not unavoidably ask to be relied on. Theirs is the language of self-questioning--metaphors that flip opposed to themselves, syntax that strikes a technique since it threatens to maneuver one other. Poems face up to themselves extra strenuously than they're resisted through the cultures receiving them.

Zinoviev Michael Kirkwood It is tempting to begin this chapter with a quotation from Zinoviev's latest book 1 which might well serve as an epigraph: 'Ignore official ideology. Any attention paid to it only strengthens it. ' 2 This is a piece of advice which one finds from time to time in Zinoviev's work, expressed less succinctly, but no less adamantly. 3 It is advice which he has not taken himself.
