About this book

Taking as its starting point Delmore Schwartz's self-appointment as both a 'poet of the Hudson River' and 'laureate of the Atlantic,' this book comprehensively reassesses the poetic achievement of a critically neglected writer. Runchman reads Schwartz's poetry in relation to its national and international perspectives.

About the authors

Alex Runchman is Associate Lecturer at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

Reviews

'As evidenced by Alex Runchman's skillfully and thoroughly researched book, an argument on the behalf of the lesser-known American poet, Delmore Schwartz, can be made, should be made, and has now been made here. Organized, pithy, and direct, Alex Runchman's clear and well-executed study deserves transatlantic attention.' -Stephen Burt, Professor of English, Harvard University, USA
