MEDIA REVIEWS
""Songs of Degrees" is an engaging, powerful collection. Essay after essay is full of well-written, important insights. Taggart offers the most perceptive readings available of two major American poets, George Oppen and Louis Zukofsky, and connects their work to ongoing poetic innovation. This volume represents nearly 20 years of Taggart's impressive thinking about modern poetry."
Hank Lazer, The University of Alabama"
