Ambition and Survival: Becoming a Poet
Wiman's essays up until "Fugitive" pieces are simply brilliant. From there, they become more fragmentary, like journal notes and reviews more fit for other purposes, more full of opinion than revelation--until the final piece, "Love Bade Me Welcome," which is again stunning. I wish I could give four-and-three-quarter stars to this near-perfect collection, which I still highly recommend to anyone seeking solace in the reading and writing of poetry.
