This intimate collection of essays addressed to the common reader pays tribute to one of the twentieth century's major poets. Encompassing every phase of A. R. Ammons's oeuvre, from his beginnings in the 1950s to his late masterpieces, Garbage and Glare, this book of essays explores the personal side of a poet often still seen as forbiddingly abstract and intellectual. Included are essays by Helen Vendler, Alice Fulton, Harold Bloom, and John Ashbery, among others.
