Drowning with others; poems by James Dickey( Book )
22 editions published between 1958 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,011 libraries worldwide
The world of James Dickey is founded in great and basic realities - the human ties of family and history, the world of nonhuman nature, the inhuman world of war. He sees these things, on their surfaces, as all men see them. But to that general view he adds the special quality of dream, of a constant play back and forth between what is easily evident and the half-glimpsed revelation that lies masked beneath it. Whether it is a hound running foxes at night, or the harlots of Pompeii fixed in crude paint on the walls of their chambers, or the memory of dead kings brooding over the cliffs of Dover, all that he senses is given a fresh interpretation and a special meaning that are at once deeply private and broadly universal. To read Mr. Dickey's poems is a rewarding experience indeed. --Wesleyan University Press

Classes on modern poets and the art of poetry by James Dickey( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 785 libraries worldwide
"James Dickey devoted himself as much to the critique of the modern literary tradition as to his participation in it. After his death in 1997, a transcription of his lectures was found among his papers. Collected here and published for the first time, these lectures reveal judgments and appraisals Dickey would use to great effect in his teaching. They also contribute to the unraveling of Dickey's art from the larger-than-life myth that surrounded him." "Full of asides, witticisms, and afterthoughts, the sessions suggest not the pontification of a scholar at an academic conference but the confident learning of a practicing poet who happens to enjoy being in the classroom. Clearly setting forth his sense of literary criticism, Dickey repeatedly emphasizes the preeminence of the poet over the critic, the original use of language as a primary criterion for effective poetry, and the centrality of personal reaction to poetry as a measure of its value. Dickey's comments are valuable for their insight into both his own thought processes and those of the poets he reviewed."--Jacket
