Reviews

Review:

"The mind at work in The Situation of Poetry is lively, fresh, and critical without being obsessed by the rigor of criticism. [Pinsky's] comments are brief, vivid, distinct. . . and his taste is excellent."--Denis Donoghue, The New York Times Book Review

"No one can read Pinsky's writing without being provoked to thought."--Helen Vendler, The Nation

Endorsement:

"A first-rate piece of work. I can't imagine anyone capable of reading this book and not learning from it."--Hugh Kenner
