Synthesizing Gravity (eBook)
de Kay Ryan
Sobre o livro
Synthesizing Gravity gathers for the first time a thirty-year selection of Kay Ryans probings into aesthetics, poetics, and the mind in pursuit of art.
A bracing collection of critical prose, book reviews, and her private previously unpublished soundings of poems and poets including Robert Frost, Stevie Smith, Marianne Moore, William Bronk, and Emily DickinsonSynthesizing Gravity bristles with Ryans crisp wit, her keen off-kilter insights, and her appetite and appreciation for the genuine. Among essays like Radiantly Indefensible, Notes on the Danger of Notebooks, and The Abrasion of Loneliness, are piquant pieces on the virtues of emptiness, forgetfulness and other under-loved concepts. Edited and with an introduction by Christian Wiman, this generous collection of Ryans distinctive thinking gives us a surprising look into the mind of an American master.
