Blasing wants to clear American poetry of its "centering figure," Ralph Waldo Emerson, instead identifying Emerson, Poe, Whitman, and Dickinson as that tradition's four informing figures. She then associates each with a "master trope"metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, and irony, respectivelythat serves as a "strategy" for organizing poems. Blasing's thesis, a hodge-podge of linguistics and phenomenology that is muddled from the introduction on, serves to drive away the diligent reader, while the omission of historical Puritanism and its offshoots (Edwards, Alcott, Thoreau) prevents her from really getting at the roots of the American sensibility. Not a book, but a series of disjointed essays.

Book Description: An important study that redefines poetic tradition in America. Arguing against the prevailing view that Emerson stands alone at the head of a single line of succession, Mutlu Konuk Blasing proposes four traditions, traceable through modernist and postmodernist poets. She chooses for analysis T. S. Eliot, and Sylvia Plath, in the line of descent from Poe; Wallace Stevens and Elizabeth Bishop, descending from Emerson; Ezra Pound and Frank O'Hara, from Whitman; and Hart Crane and John Ashbery, from Dickinson.
