Bruce Bawer is the most clear-eyed and fierce literary critic writing today ... and he's troubled about the state of poetry. These 23 essays -- many written for The New Criterion -- take no half-measure and fewer prisoners. The Helen Vendlers and Allen Ginsbergs are radically examined, leaving the world a better place.
