From the Publisher

This is an analysis of the literary art of recapturing the past as the artist perceives it. By clearly distinguishing different ways of creating a past--in fiction, history, and other arts--Toliver enriches our understanding of literary strategies.

The Past that Poets Make examines such questions as how a fictional narrative differs from other ways of seeing a past time; to what extent literature is nontemporal, transcending its time, and to what extent it is tied to the institutions and traditions of its era; how given works conjure up a sense of time; and how fictional narratives function as transmitters of ideas to societies prepared to absorb them.

Seller Comments:

9 1/2" Tall. Preliminary pages + 256 pages including detailed "Notes to Pages" and index. To quote dustcover to book: "Mr. Toliver looks at a range of poets-Spenser, Donne, Milton, Herbert, Pope, Wordsworth, Keats, Yeats, and Eliot-who deal self-consciously with pastness. He also comments on moderns like Stevens, Williams, and Wilbur who limit their indebtedness to the past. This is an essay in literary theory that is firmly grounded in a richness of specific examples, drawn from a variety of modes and periods. "
