Is description an end in itself, or a means of expressing desire? Ezra Pound demanded that a poem should represent the external world as objectively and directly as possible, and William Butler Yeats, in his introduction to The Oxford Book of Modern Verse , said that he and his generation were rebelling against, inter alia, "irrelevant descriptions of nature" in the work of their predecessors.
The poets in this book, however, who are distinct in many ways from one another, all observe the external world of nature or the reflected world of art, and make relevant poems out of their observations. This study deals with the crisp, elegant work of Charles Tomlinson, the swirling baroque poetry of Amy Clampitt, the metaphysical meditations of Charles Wright from a position in his backyard, the weather reports and landscapes of John Ashbery, and the "new way of looking" that Jorie Graham proposes to explore in her increasingly fragmented poems.
All of these poets, plus others Gary Snyder, Theodore Weiss, Irving Feldman, Richard Howard who are dealt with more briefly, attend to what Wallace Stevens, in a memorable phrase, calls "the way things look each day.
