Description - The End of the Mind by DeSales Harrison

This book seeks to include among accounts of modern lyric poetry a theory of the poem's relation to the unintelligible. DeSales Harrison draws a distinction between sites of unintelligibility and sights of difficulty; while much has been said about modernist difficulty, little has been said about the attention that poets give to phenomena that arrest, impede, obscure, damage or destroy the capacity for intelligible representation.
