How to Read the New Contemporary Poem
Breslin, Paul
American Scholar, 47, 3, 357-70, Sum 78
Since the late 1960s the poetic muse has taken on a new style called "surrealism" or the "new surrealism". Some of the movements' best known poets, such as W. S. Merwin, Robert Bly, James Wright, Charles Simic et al., are discussed through their poetry and what it may mean for the rest of us. (RK)
