AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Hope argues that Brennan invented a private language that is difficult to decipher, but stresses that symbolist ideas are not just literary talk--they are the essentially human experience. Hope acknowledges the limitations of Brennan's verse and defends the poet's Platonic position, but argues that Poems offers modern readers more than detractors have claimed.
