"What do American poets mean when they talk about "freedom"? Freedom from what, or the freedom to do what? And how does form, as an aesthetic choice, dramatize certain fundamental questions, such as what shapes we want to give to our poetic lives, how much power we actually have to choose those shapes, and what, exactly, do we even mean by "we"? The former editor of Literary Imagination here collects his thoughts on the last one hundred years of American poetry, the poems he finds to be the most awe-inspiring, the most surprising and inevitable, and the ones built to endure. Peter Campion challenges facile, received notions and shows us an American poetic landscape more subtle and varied than most critics have allowed. The book is also about poetic making, whether out of the tensions between personal and communal experience, or an effort to reinvent the art by combining epic and lyric precedents, or, finally, as a negotiation between the pull of convention and the desire for individual expression, between abstract formal energies and the ever-thickening texture of our shared global social experience"--

Norman MacCaig, who died in 1996, is widely regarded as Scotland's finest contemporary poet, whose later poetry is both accessible and popular. This perceptive study places him in his literary and social contexts and conveys the vigorous intelligence, pithy humour and surprise that characterizes his writing. Approaching the poetry thematically rather than sequentially the author gives a vivid impression of the whole poet and offers both an introduction to and an analysis of MacCaig's major poems with helpful connecting commentary. Throughout this study Alasdair Macrae allows the sharp wit, intelligence and humaneness of the poems to speak to readers and shock, delight and challenge them.

How new biomedical technologies—from prenatal testing to gene-editing techniques—require us to imagine who counts as human and what it means to belong. From next-generation prenatal tests, to virtual children, to the genome-editing tool CRISPR-Cas9, new biotechnologies grant us unprecedented power to predict and shape future people. That power implies a question about belonging: which people, which variations, will we welcome? How will we square new biotech advances with the real but fragile gains for people with disabilities—especially when their voices are all but absent from the conversation? This book explores that conversation, the troubled territory where biotechnology and disability meet. In it, George Estreich—an award-winning poet and memoirist, and the father of a young woman with Down syndrome—delves into popular representations of cutting-edge biotech: websites advertising next-generation prenatal tests, feature articles on “three-parent IVF,” a scientist's memoir of constructing a semisynthetic cell, and more. As Estreich shows, each new application of biotechnology is accompanied by a persuasive story, one that minimizes downsides and promises enormous benefits. In this story, people with disabilities are both invisible and essential: a key promise of new technologies is that disability will be repaired or prevented. In chapters that blend personal narrative and scholarship, Estreich restores disability to our narratives of technology. He also considers broader themes: the place of people with disabilities in a world built for the able; the echoes of eugenic history in the genomic present; and the equation of intellect and human value. Examining the stories we tell ourselves, the fables already creating our futures, Estreich argues that, given biotech that can select and shape who we are, we need to imagine, as broadly as possible, what it means to belong.
