Reviews: The Body of Poetry
- Laura Wetherington
"A simultaneously thorough and mercurial array of musings on poetics . . . Finch revivifies the dusty vault of prosody with the arcane dexterity of a necromancer. . . Overall, this text is an important one for the serious reader of poetry, particularly those who are troubled by the surface limitations and contradictions of metric formal verse, but who are eager to meet such work on its own territory with an astute and unbiased critic such as Finch as their guide."
—Mark Lamoureaux in Art New England
"A brillliant book by an important contemporary theorist, written in an elegant and accessible style.
—Julie Kane in Journal of Consciousness, Literature and the Arts
"Poeta independente, como prefere ser vista, Annie Finch leva para os ensaios as experiências com a criação literária. Pela sua diversidade e pelo alcance das opiniões apresentadas, The Body of Poetry é uma excelente porta de entrada para o singular universo de Annie Finch."
—Vitor Alevato do Amaral in Travessias (Brazil)
