Book Overview
Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature Proofs and Theories , winner of the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for First Non-Fiction, is an illuminating collection of essays by Louise Gl ck, one of this country's most brilliant poets. Like her poems, the prose of Gl ck, who won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1993 for The Wild Iris , is compressed, fastidious, fierce, alert, and absolutely unconsoled. The force of her thought is evident everywhere in these essays, from her explorations of other poets' work to her skeptical contemplation of current literary critical notions such as sincerity and courage. Here also are Gl ck's revealing reflections on her own education and life as a poet, and a tribute to her teacher and mentor, Stanley Kunitz. Proofs and Theories is not a casual collection. It is the testament of a major poet.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Winner of the 1993 PEN/Martha Albrand Award for First Non-Fiction, Proofs and Theories is an illuminating collection of essays by Louise Glück, whose most recent book of poems, The Wild Iris, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Glück brings to her prose the same precision of language, the same incisiveness and insight that distinguish her poetry. The force of her thought is evident everywhere in these essays, from her explorations of other poets' work to her skeptical contemplation of current literary critical notions such as sincerety and courage. Here also are Glück's revealing reflections on her own education and life as a poet, and a tribute to her teacher and mentor, Stanley Kunitz. Proofs and Theories is the testament of a major poet.
