The most provocative American intellectual contributes her dazzling powers of examination to the best-known poems of the Western tradition and unearths some previously obscure verses that deserve a space in our canon.

Extracto del libro:

Combining close reading with a panoramic breadth of learning, Camille Paglia sharpens our understanding of poems we thought we knew, from Shakespeare to Dickinson to Plath, and makes a case for including in the canon works by Paul Blackburn, Wanda Coleman, Chuck Wachtel, Rochelle Kraut—and even Joni Mitchell. Daring, riveting, and beautifully written, Break, Blow, Burn is a modern classic that excites even seasoned poetry lovers—and continues to create generations of new ones.

James Wolcott :

The chapter on Sylvia Plath’s ‘Daddy’ will take the top of your head off!

As entertaining as it is dazzingly erudite, Break, Blow, Burn is capable of re-energizing any reader’s engagement with poetry.

I hope a lot of people read this book. . . . There wasn’t a commentary where I didn’t learn something about the poem in question, no matter how familiar the poem was.

It will have students storming the walls of tomorrow’s English departments, mad for poetry again.
