A Driftwood Altar PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Driftwood Altar free pdf Mark Ford is widely regarded as one of the most exciting and innovative British poets of his generation. His two collections, "Landlocked" (1992) and "Soft Sift" (2001), have been highly praised by poets and critics in Britain and America, and translated into numerous languages. He is also an incisive and alert commentator on the work of others- over the last fifteen years his articles and reviews have appeared on a regular basis in journals such as the "London Review of Books", the "Times Literary Supplement", the "New York Review of Books", "Poetry Review" and the "New Republic". "A Driftwood Altar" is Ford's own selection of the best of these pieces. They cover an impressive range of British, American and European authors, and cast a fascinating light on Ford's own development as a poet. He writes with particular verve on the eccentric and off-beat - on the likes of Mina Loy, F.T. Marinetti, the Australian hoax poet Ern Malley, the Oulipian Georges Perec, and the brilliant, doomed Romantic Thomas Lovell Beddoes. These essays reveal a judicious eye for detail and an infectious interest in authors often overlooked by literary history- yet Ford also tackles some of the major figures of the twentieth century, and his articles on canonical poets like Elizabeth Bishop and W.H. Auden offer provocative and compelling new perspectives on their work. "A Driftwood Altar" is a lucid, beguiling, and often very funny collection of essays, and is sure to consolidate Ford's reputation as one of the foremost poet-critics of the age.
