Show Summary Details


This chapter addresses the question of whether poetry is a branch of knowledge, or just of rhetoric. Poets like William Bronk, John Koethe, Jorie Graham, Rae Armantrout, and Michael Palmer hold their poems especially close to the rational mode of expression that commonly counts as prose; the chapter focuses on that particular range of the art of poetry.

Keywords: poems; poetry; knowledge; rhetoric; prose; William Bronk; John Koethe; Jorie Graham; Rae Armantrout; Michael Palmer
