Voices of the Headland : Robinson Jeffers and the Bird of Prey Hardback

Part of the Studies on Themes and Motifs in Literature series

Description

Voices of the Headland: Robinson Jeffers and the Bird of Prey explores the image of the raptor in the poetry of Robinson Jeffers.

Emanating from the continent's end of the American West, Jeffers' poetic eagles, hawks, falcons, vultures, and other birds of prey symbolize the compelling presence and voice of nature, a pantheistic universe of beauty and splendor, death and destruction.

It is the perilous bird of prey which calls forth the very essence and life-force of Jeffers himself, winging its way through his expansive body of narrative and lyrical verse, a poetry fundamentally anti-social in its vision and primitive in its basic, instinctual surge.

Voices of the Headland examines this distinctive imagery from many critical viewpoints.
