Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This important work is the first book-length critical study of an underrated poet. In it, borrowing a distinction from one of her early poems, Travisano aptly. marks Bishop's development from solitary 'map-maker' to more socially and culturally focused 'historian.' While never making biography intrusive, he frames her movement toward a more personal voice in her later poems with sensitive reference to the events and relationships of her life. Also useful is the brief mapping of Bishop's influence on other poets. Travisano's greatest strength, however, lies in his powerful and intuitive readings of several of Bishop's poems. Highly recommended.--Library Journal. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
In this book, the first study of Elizabeth Bishop's whole career, Travisano explores her development as an artist. Through sensitive reading of the poems, supported by comparison with Bishop's letters, interviews, stories, memoirs, and critical essays, he defines the traditions that shaped Bishop's introspective early work and the evolution of her later work toward a more public style.
