The Man from Porlock : Engagements, 1944-1981
These essays by the poet and critic Theodore Weiss explore a problem already powerful in Lucretius, conspicuous with Shakespeare, and more than ever a concern for modern writers--the place; and price of poetry in a prose-minded world. Originally published in 1982. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
