Person and Poet

Begun in 1979 with Louis Zukofsky, each volume in this ongoing series offers a substantial collection of scholarly, personal, and poetic tributes to a major modern poet, critical studies of that poet’s work, and an annotated, year-by-year bibliography of critical work on the poet. With a few exceptions, the essays and other works published in these volumes are not reprints; rather, most of them were especially commissioned for the series and are not available elsewhere.
