Stevens, Williams, Crane and the Motive for Metaphor by Robert M. Rehder
Book DescriptionRehder's study examines the use of metaphor in three of America's greatest poets. Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams and Hart Crane are looked at in turn, their views on metaphor discussed and their use of metaphor in their poems analyzed. Considering Aristotle and Derrida, and taking account of recent theoretical work, Rehder offers an interpretation of why metaphor is fundamental to our thinking and to poetry.
