Bright, clean softcover with no marks or flaws; no sign of handling or wear. 256 pages.

From the publisher's website description, "Radiant Lyre: Essays on Lyric Poetry is a significant book on poetry from its earliest, traditional roots to its most recent and fractured forms. The essays gathered here, by an array of brilliant contemporary poets, explore the history of the lyric poem, its rhetorical modes and strategies. How does the lyric operate in an elegy, a love poem, or ode? How is meaning conveyed by a pastoral poem, the sublime, the narrative? How does the lyric investigate nature, beauty, and time? How are these lyric forms and strategies received? Radiant Lyre gives the contemporary reader a sense of the origin, evolution, and present status of the modes and means of lyric poetry."

7 Denson, Alan; George William Russell Letters From A.E. Selected and Edited By Alan Denson
London Abelard-Schuman 1962 Hardcover Good Good 
Hardcover in price-clipped dust jacket. 288 pages : illustrations. Occasional pencilled underlining and marginalia. Jacket has some wear, but now protected in a clear sleeve.

George William Russell, better known as AE(1867-1935), mystic, poet, painter, journalist, editor, and practical rural economist, was a pivotal figure in the Irish literary revival and in the emergence of modern Ireland. From the beginning of the twentieth century he formed life-long friendships with W. B. Yeats, George Moore, Lord Dunsany, James Stephens, Stephen Mackenna (translator of the Enneads of Plotinus), James Joyce, and other writers, thinkers, and artists, and was closely associated with the Irish National Theatre Society (later the Abbey Theatre). Russell's influence was as extensive in practical and political affairs as it was in the more intimate spiritual domain.

8 Di Prima, Diane R.D.'s H.D. (Lost and Found Series - The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative)
CUNY 2011 Paperback Like New 
Like-new stapled literary journal. No marks or writing in book; no evidence of wear. 42-page essay on the Poetics of Influence in Robert Duncan's HD BOOK.

CUNY's website describes their series as "LOST & FOUND: THE CUNY POETICS DOCUMENT INITIATIVE publishes unexpected, genre-bending works by important 20th century writers. Unearthed from personal and institutional archives in the United States and abroad, these materials are edited by doctoral students at the Graduate Center, CUNY. SERIES II is a collection of 6 chapbooks featuring Diane di Prima's Mysteries of Vision: Some Notes on H.D. and R.D.'S H.D. (on Robert Duncan); a transcription of Robert Duncan's Charles Olson Memorial Lecture; selections from the Mexico City-based literary magazine El Corno Emplumado [The Plumed Horn] by Margaret Randall; Selections from Muriel Rukeyser's Spanish Civil War Archive; and Jack Spicer's Beowulf. Edited, annotated, and with accompanying essays, The London Review of Books calls this "a serious and worthy enterprise." Diane di Prima calls the series "a gold mine" and Joanne Kyger writes: "What a brilliant cast of characters. Just exactly what one (myself) would like to read."

"R.D.'s H.D. is an extraordinarily moving homage to a dear friend and a deep influence, as well as an illustration of a unique methodological approach to poetics. It was given as part of a series of lectures dedicated to Robert Duncan and organized by Aaron Shurin, poet and former student of Duncan's at New College in San Francisco. Published here for the first time with an Afterword and exhaustive biographical notes by Ammiel Alcalay, the volume offers an overview of lineages that defined a generation."
