Wiseblood publishes The Fortunes of Poetry in an Age of Unmaking along with Dana Gioia's important paperbound essay, Poetry as Enchantment. Both are available as a gift set at a generously discounted price (click the cover of the Gioia book to order). This is a great day for those who wish to renew the literary culture of our day. For three decades, Gioia has done more than any other poet-critic to bring great poetry to a broad public; he has no only changed the literary landscape; he has changed the face of American culture for the better. My own book attempts by sustained critical reflection to continue for a new generation what Gioia has so successfully begun.
