This paper examines the political viability of Denise Levertov’s lyrical aesthetics, in which the poet connects poetic imagination to the politics of immanence in wartime. Throughout the seven volumes published since TheSorrow Dance, Levertov has actively responded to war so as to demonstrate her politically engaged activism, which is of course based on her ideas of a lyrical aesthetics. Levertov argues that personal experiences are the most powerful political grounds to define oneself as an individual enmeshed within a web of communal relations. She thus expands the solipsistic “I” into the communal “we,” and develops her idea of solidarity through the power of imagination, which she believes can clarify a divine presence within each person-and indeed object too-to inspire thereafter a vision of cosmic unity. She insists that only poetry with such imagination can create empathy and provoke a collective voice, which is the source of strength for any social change. Levertov’s poetic efforts to change a traditional notion of literary imagination into a communal agent of political activism challenges readers to be aware of the political potential of lyric modes during times of urgency and emergency.

Although Robert Frost has been known to sympathize with impoverished working class folks, his conservative political stance has rarely been indicated in the examination of his representative poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” As is revealed in some of his notes, he opposed the idea of collective political action on the part of the working class for fear that it might endanger American capitalism. This paper takes note of his conservative politics and argues that Frost’s political views are traced within one of his most famous poems, to specifically render the poem’s structural dichotomy unstable. Appropriating particular conceptual tools from Marx and Benjamin, this paper asserts and argues for a tension between the apparently straightforward narrative surface of the narrator’s aesthetic immersion and his possessive preoccupation with a matter of ownership. Reading this way, the narrator’s hesitancy seems inscribed with Frost’s political conservatism concerning the working-class impulse for bettering their given conditions of life.

In “Feeling into Words”(1980) Seamus Heaney reveals his efforts to understand T. S. Eliot’s poetry, while operating his essential “sensibility of overcoming.” Heaney always tried to overcome spiritual obstacles with his positive attitude and inner strength. As for getting over Eliot’s influence, he confesses to feeling as if a “neophyte reader.” This paper, therefore, re-reads “Learning from Eliot” so as to illuminate Heaney’s process of overcoming the American poet’s influence, and seeks to describe how his active engagement with Eliot’s poetry provides him with motivation to control his insecurity and develop hisemergent poetics. Comparing himself to an “echo-chamber,” Heaney synthesizes the notion of an “auditory imagination” from Eliot’s discussion of Matthew Arnold. As a so-called echo-chamber, and through a deep understanding of Eliot’s poetry, Heaney reveals his own hand in the making of a poetic self.

William Carlos Williams’s long poem, Paterson(1969), not only follows a traditional hero``s story line but also presents the protagonist Dr. P as a post-modern everyday hero. According to Joseph Campbell, Lorna Catford, and Michael Ray, an ordinary man can be a hero if he meets with difficulty and gets an insight through mental change in his life. This paper, therefore, observes how Dr. P goes through three stages, separation-initiation-return, suffers from psychological ordeals and frustrations, and finally resuscitates himself through awakening in the Passaic river. In this process Dr. P realizes that man and nature, man and woman, and the strong and the weak are not in a subject-object relationship but in a symbiotic relationship. Reading Paterson as the myth of a post-modern hero, this paper ultimately asserts that Williams presents Dr. P as a model to help readers set out their own journey to face their life issues with a new emphatic vista to understand nature and fellow citizens through an active penetration.

This paper investigates William Carlos Williams’s In the American Grain (1925), a collection of essays on American history, in which the poet argues that American Puritanism and its Eurocentric worldview play a most crucial role in attempting to stabilize a unitary notion of American cultural identity. Reading Williams’s essays through the critical lens of Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy, this study seeks to explore his development of an anti-Puritan stance toward a locality-based literary practice. Ultimately, Williams’s transatlantic historical imaginary is read here as corresponding to his own drive to promote a life-affirming Dionysian (Nietzschean) poetics, a poetics grounded in the direct experience of local cultures.
