Talking All Morning
Author: Robert Bly
Publisher: University of Michigan Press (1990)
"The wildness of Bly's imagination and his passionate commitment to poetry make this collection of eighteen interviews, nine poems and three essays one of the most important—certainly the most provocative—commentaries on the relationship of poetry to life to come along in quite a while. The collection gives us both a comprehensive review of Bly's career as a poet and abundant discussion of politics and poetry, the varieties of surrealism, translation, Jungian psychology and the deep image."
–World Literature Today
"This is genuine Bly—surrealist, mystic, anti-war critic, purveyor of strong medicine against the American way of life."
