Product Details

Praise

“This is an inspired book, an argument which is poetry in action. It may very well be that Elizabeth Sewell is of the visionary company which her work describes. I regard The Orphic Voice as a book of tremendous originality and importance.” —George Steiner

“Esoteric [and] engrossing . . . Sewell contends that poetry is our most inclusive form of thought, the best instrument yet devised for dealing with wholes, for unifying all the forms in nature, whether they pertain to inner or outer landscape.” —Stanley Kunitz

The Orphic Voice is important both in the literature of the history of ideas and as a kind of source-book for working poets (and readers of poetry).” —Denise Levertov
