Reading Adam Kirsch




I'm currently reading The Modern Element: Essays on Contemporary Poetry (W.W. Norton & Company, 2008) by Adam Kirsch. I do not often agree with Kirsch's conclusions--he is a bit too Apollonian for my tastes--but I do enjoy reading his criticism. Unlike (for example) William Logan, Kirsch does not heap personal abuse upon the poets he writes about.
