About this product
- DescriptionThere is something offensive about poetry, judging by the number of attacks on it and defences of it. The author argues that poetry exists to offend - not through its subject matter but through the challenges it presents to the prevailing view of what language is for. He also specifies four poetic offences - gesture, drama, fiction, and trope.
- Author BiographyHazard Adams is professor emeritus of comparative literature, University of Washington, and founder and honorary senior fellow of the School of Criticism and Theory. His Critical Theory since Plato has served as a standard text in the field for more than three decades.
