The American Conservative has just published the best review any author could hope to receive. David Middleton's "Recovering the Art of Poetry" is both generous in its evaluation and incredibly valuable in clarifying the central argument and themes of The Fortunes of Poetry in an Age of Unmaking. Middleton concludes:
"For those poets who wish to recover the art of poetry in its fullness and to tell the story of humankind and of Creation in light of what Jacques Maritain called “the radiance of the ontological mystery,” this book shows them how to do so. It points the way back home."
Click the picture to contemplate that fullness more fully. It is not too late to add The Fortunes of Poetry to your Christmas list, or to give it as a gift to someone who loves poetry, or someone who does not but needs to learn to do so.
