What is it about?

Examines Henry James's significance as a model of the poet-critic for four twentieth-century authors: T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, W.H. Auden, and R.P. Blackmur.

Why is it important?

Draws attention to a little-examined but characteristically twentieth-century figure of the author as devised by four major American writers via their sometimes overlapping, sometimes conflicting interpretations of the novelist Henry James. Includes consideration of a now often overlooked poet-critic, R.P. Blackmur.
