One in a series of essays concerned with poetry, poets, poetics, etc. This one is called, "Culture War III: Ecstasy," and is by Donald Byrd. It's a first-rate rant against modernism, but Byrd is sometimes as foolishly narrow as modernism's most obtuse defenders, as when he says "not a damned thing depends on that red wheel barrow nor the careful structure of Williams' most famous little poem."--Bob Grumman
