English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 265 Pages | ISBN : 3319706659 | 3.06 MB
This book argues that there are deep connections between ‘poetic' thinking and the sensitive recognition of creaturely others. It explores this proposition in relation to four poets: Marianne Moore, Elizabeth Bishop, Ted Hughes, and Les Murray. Through a series of close readings, and by paying close attention to issues of sound, rhythm, simile, metaphor, and image, it explores how the poetry cultivates a special openness towards animal others.
