really liked it

Fabulous collection of essays on lyric. If you've been wondering the history, the modes, or means, or just what lyric poetry is, this book is a must read. David Baker and Ann Townsend as well as the other poet-essayists in this collection do a great job to show varying perspectives on ode, elegy, the erotic, pastoral as well as discuss lyric time, sublime, and other lyric modes. Wonderful informative essays!
