Description Allusion to the Poets de Christopher Ricks:

Allusion to the words and phrases of ancestral voices is one of the hiding-places of poetry's power. Poets appreciate the great debts that they owe to previous poets, and are often duly and newly grateful. Allusion to the Poets consists of twelve essays - four published here for the first time - on allusion and its relations, in particular on the use that poets in English have made of the very words of poets in English. The first half of the book, on 'The Poet as Heir', consists of six chapters devoted to individual poets, Augustan, Romantic, and Victorian: Dryden and Pope, Burns, Wordsworth, Byron, Keats, and Tennyson. Allusion is always a form of inheritance, not to be hoarded or squandered. The critical and creative question is its imaginative co-operation with other kinds of legacy - with whatever for a particular poet or for a particular time is judged to be an unignorable inheritance: of a throne, perhaps, or of land- of intermixed languages- of the human senses- of money- of literature itself- or of our planet, long-lived but not eternal. The second half of the book is six essays on allusion's affiliations: to plagiarism (allusion being plagiarism's responsible opposite)- to metaphor (allusion being a form that metaphor may take)- to loneliness in poetry (allusion constituting company). And on allusion within poetry to prose (A E. Housman)- on translation as exercising allusion (David Ferry)- and on the clash between one poet's practice and his critical principles (Yvor Winters). Ricks's books include: (ed.) The Oxford Book of English Verse (OUP 1999) Essays in Appreciation (OUP 1996) (ed.) Inventions of the March Hare : Poems 1909-1917 by T. S. Eliot (Fabers 1996) Beckett's Dying Words: The Clarendon Lectures, 1990 (OUP 1993) (ed.) Longman annotated poets: Tennyson (Longman 1989) T.S. Eliot and Prejudice (Fabers 1988) (ed.) The New Oxford Book of Victorian Verse (1987), The Force of Poetry (OUP 1984) Keats and Embarrassment (OUP 1974) English Drama to 1710 (OUP 1971)# Milton's Grand Style (OUP 1963)
