Summary
"Combining new and old critical methods in insightful ways that themselves suggest the possibility of a new, inclusive mode of literary criticism, After the Heavenly Tune illuminates a subject central to the history of poetry to a condition of song. In prose that often achieves the condition of music it describes, this study is the first of its kind to analyze the large questions about poetic authority and musical aspiration."--BOOK JACKET
