About this book

What do we mean by 'voice' in poetry? In this work, David Nowell Smith teases out the diverse meanings of 'voice', from a poem's soundworld to the rhetorical gestures through which poems speak to us, in order to embark on a philosophical exploration of the concept of voice itself.

Reviews

“Nowell Smith begins and ends with Hopkins, giving circular coherence, but each chapter is individually ‘essayistic,’ offering a ‘speculative poetics.’ … what is explored here is explored brilliantly. … this is a fascinating work of animation.” (Rebecca Varley-Winter, The Goose, Vol. 14 (2), February, 2016)
