Abstract:
"When Robert Penn Warren asks, "what / Is man but his passion?" he exemplifies the type of artist that the British Romantics celebrated. Poems of Pure Imagination traces the development of Warren's poetic craft as influenced by that movement's ideals." "Lesa Carnes Corrigan lays out clearly the six-decades-long progression in Warren's Romantic vision - a combination of Wordsworth's tempered aesthetics and Yeats's awareness of historical violence and modern estrangement. She demonstrates how closely the poet associated his most deeply felt intuitions about art and life with the overarching philosophies of the Romantics."--Jacket.
