Elizabeth Bishop by Kim Fortuny
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Kim Fortuny argues that Bishop's travel poetry reveals a political and social consciousness that, until fairly recently, has largely been seen as absent from her poetry and her life. Fortuny argues that questions of travel bring up questions of form in Bishop's poems. Moreover, because Bishop knows much about both travel and form, yet is particularly well versed in the latter, Bishop's poetry sheds light on the ethical and political problems of modern travel from a vantage gained by a scrupulous and hard-won artistry. The book will appeal to Bishop scholars, literary scholars, and those with an interest in Modernist poetry.
