The Sighted Singer, revised and augmented edition
Two Works on Poetry for Readers and Writers
The Sighted Singer makes available a revised and significantlyexpanded version of Against Our Vanishing and includes Grossman's recent treatise " Summa Lyrica: A Primer of the Commonplaces in Speculative Poetry." This combined edition provides a sophisticated yet accessible discussion—across generations—of "the fundamental discourse of poetic structure."
In the ideal writing program where criticism and creative writing imply, sustain, and nourish one another, Allen Grossman's ' Summa Lyrica' would be required reading.
