Item Description...
"When I call poetry a form of partiality," writes Heather McHugh, "I mean its economies operate by powers of intimation: glimmering and glints, rather than exhaustible sums. It is a broken language from the beginning, brimming with non-words: all that white welled up to keep the line from surrendering to the margin; all that quiet, to keep the musics marked." In Broken English, McHugh applies her poetic sensibility and formidable critical insight to topics ranging from the poetry of Valery and Rilke to ancient Greek drama and Yoruba folk songs, offering intense, passionate, highly personal readings that are informed and unified by her concern for the relationships among language, culture, and poetry.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
broken - and still english  May 29, 2010
I cannot explain this, but the first time I read these essays I did not understand anything about them. The second time I started at the beginning again, and they were as clear as a bell!!
Intriguing, clever, thought-provoking, imaginative.
