A moving meditation on memory, oblivion, and eternity by one of our most celebrated poets What is it we want when we can’t stop wanting? And how do we make that hunger productive and vital rather than corrosive and destructive? These are the questions that animate Christian Wiman as he explores the relationships between art and faith, death and fame, heaven and oblivion. Above all, He Held Radical Light is a love letter to poetry, filled with moving, surprising, and sometimes funny encounters with the poets Wiman has known. Seamus Heaney opens a suddenly intimate conversation about faith; Mary Oliver puts half of a dead pigeon in her pocket; A. R. Ammons stands up in front of an audience and refuses to read. He Held Radical Light is as urgent and intense as it is lively and entertaining—a sharp sequel to Wiman’s earlier memoir, My Bright Abyss.

Named as a 2020 Book of the Year by The Times Literary Supplement Survival Is a Style, Christian Wiman’s first collection of new poems in six years, may be his best book yet. His many readers will recognize the musical and formal variety, the voice that can be tender and funny, credibly mystical and savagely skeptical. But there are many new notes in this collection as well, including a moving elegy to the poet’s father, sharp observations and distillations of modern American life, and rangy poems that merge and juxtapose different modes of speech and thought. The cumulative effect is extraordinary. Reading Survival Is a Style, one has the sense one is encountering work that will become a permanent part of American literature.

This is a teaching anthology arranged chronologically and concentrating on major poets, with a more selective treatment of significant minor writers. Intended for both survey and genre courses in poetry, it provides the basic texts for the study of a poet's work in some depth and establishesmaximum interrelations among poems, poets and periods so that it can be used to show changes in genre and mode, as well as historical and literary influences.The anthology presents the key poems for understanding our poetic tradition. Selection is based on the excellence of the poems themselves along with the following considerations: how well they reflect their period, show the development of a genre or mode, illustrate the best aspects of theindividual poet's craft, and speak to the twentieth-century sensibility. As a general principle, but not a rigorous one, all selections are complete works. This differs from competing anthologies in providing a liberal selection of Canadian poetry.In addition to headnotes for each poet, the anthology includes a comprehensive fifty-page essay on versification and prosody and an author/title index.
