David C Ward
Strongly argued and I understand why it's a signal work of criticism; Happy it's back in print. Not really the kind of criticism that I am receptive to: formalist and very chilly. A little too hermetic in its argument (and, yes, I meant hermetic, not hermeneutic hich it also is.)

This book changed the way I read poetry. Simple as that.

Recommends it for: poets and people who read poetry
really truly one of the few literary criticism books that (i have read that) presents a unified and useful way to read poetry...seriously, it blew my mind
