True Friendship: Geoffrey Hill, Anthony Hecht, and Robert Lowell Under the Sign of Eliot and Pound (The Anthony Hecht Lectures in the Humanities Series)


True Friendship looks heavily at 3 amazing poets of the earlier half-century—Geoffrey Hill, Anthony Hecht, and Robert Lowell—through the lens in their relation to their predecessors in genius, T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. The serious awareness then reveals itself reciprocated, with Eliot and Pound being of their flip meditated anew in the course of the lenses in their successors. Hill, Hecht, and Lowell are one of the so much generously alert and discriminating readers, as is borne out not just via their severe prose yet (best of all) by way of their acts of latest construction, these poems of theirs which are due to Eliot and Pound.

“Opposition is correct Friendship.” So William Blake believed, or at any cost was hoping. Hill, Hecht, and Lowell show many forms of friendship with Eliot and Pound: hostile, inventive, own. of their inventive assent and dissent, the ingenious literary allusions—like different, wider types of influence—are proven to represent the main magnanimous of welcomes and of tributes.
