More than just a collection of verses, this book is something of an informal commentary on the history of English literature, something of a conversation with a few of the finest poets in the language. These original poems are written “in the manner of…,” using forms and structures pioneered by great writers (and occasionally artists) of the past to create something contemporary and modern.
