We Be­gin in Glad­ness: How Po­ets Progress (Gray­wolf Press, Novem­ber) by Craig Mor­gan Te­icher

An ac­claimed poet and critic who reg­u­larly writes re­views for the Los An­ge­les Times,

NPR, and the New York Times

Book Re­view, Craig Mor­gan Te­icher as­sem­bles here a fas­ci­nat­ing col­lec­tion of es­says that trace the po­etic de­vel­op­ment of lu­mi­nar­ies

̤ such as Sylvia Plath, John Ash­bery, Louise Gluck, W. S. Mer­win, and francine j. har­ris, ex­plor­ing how po­ets start out, how they learn to hear them­selves, and how some of them are able to cre­ate works that stand the test of time. “I do hope,” Te­icher writes, “that these in­ves­ti­ga­tions of var­i­ous po­ets’ de­vel­op­ment of­fer other writ­ers ways of think­ing about how life and art—and how art and artists—af­fect one an­other.”
