A fresh examination of poetry from Longfellow to Markham to Edna St. Vincent Millay and Robert Pinsky, Songs of Ourselves is both an elegy to the emotional life of a bygone era and an affirmation that even after the rise of high modernism and New Criticism, traditional, regular, and at times sentimental poetry continues to be enjoyed to this day. This book should be of great interest not only to specialists but also to any reader interested in the place of poetry in American life. 470 pgs Hardcover
