AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Phillip A. Ellis' essay 'studies how David Brooks has developed the use of a poetic self in his poetry. It sees some of its strategies that the poet uses with the poetic 'I', and also sees how the poetic 'I' becomes constructed as part of a universalised self, arising out of the details of the poet so that we understand more about that difference between the poet and the poetic 'I' than taking it as a self-evident, and unreflected truism.' (ix-x)
