The poetry of John Matthias has long been admired by other poets for the way it refuses to be categorized. Lyrical and experimental, cosmopolitan and rooted in place, it challenges our received notions of what poetry can be at the end of the twentieth century. This volume introduces the work of this significant American poet to readers previously unfamiliar with it and enriches the reading of those who have long admired it. The essays collected here treat Matthiass career from its beginnings under the tutelage of John Berryman and Yvor Winters through its engagement with modern and postmodern poetics. With contributions from John Peck, Michael Anania, Peter Michelson, and ten other critics, Word Play Place is the first sustained treatment of the poetry of this writer who stands outside the mainstream of American poetry in our time, and is guided by an aesthetic that has not been easy to define. This collection emphasizes how readers ought to approach Matthiass work in all its ambition, its richness, and its strangeness.

Recensioner i media

Taken together, the twelve essays in Word Play Place, prefaced by Archambeaus excellent and informative introduction, make an important statement about Matthiass place on the current poetry scene-and indeed, on the scene itself as it is playing out in Anglo-America. An extremely valuable book!
