The Illusion of Intimacy On Poetry

The Illusion of Intimacy: On Poetry brings Randall Mann’s characteristic wit, fearlessness, and attention to language, to twenty years of critical works, including reviews of early books by Laura Kasischke and Vijay Seshadri; essays on Shame, Money, and Forgetting; appreciations of Thom Gunn and John Ashbery; and two interviews. This incisive collection—a combination of criticism, close reading, autobiography, exuberance, and occasional irritation—offers a look into the mind of one of America’s finest formalists, revealing how the compression and vulnerability of the lyric draws us closer to, while asking us to resist, the limitations, freedoms, and intimacies of poetry.

Alias Bob Dylan Revisited

Bob Dylan is still singing the songs which, for more than forty years, have made him one of the most artistic voices of our time. In this revised and expanded edition of Stephen Scobie's Alias Bob Dylan, the author covers all the stages of a remarkable career: not only the incandescent impact on the mid-1960s, when Dylan revolutionized folk and popular music, but also his later reinvention of himself as a traveling performer--the old blues musician whose work may no longer be fashionable but is still intensely relevant and rewarding.
