The Poets Calling in the English Ode

The Poets Calling in the English Ode

'Fry seems to me to have made sense out of the most basic questions one would want to ask about the English ode, especially as it 'tends' toward the culmination. Fry sees in Keats. He shows how odes were formed, what their rhetorical processes required of their authors, how the conditions of odic authorship changed gradually form Johnson to Keats, and above all, why we should care about this rather monstrous mode of poetic creation... The book is an exemplary critical act.' -Angus Fletcher
