'Confessional' Writing and the Twentieth-Century Literary Imagination, Hardback Book

'Confessional' Writing and the Twentieth-Century Literary Imagination Hardback


Far from being a unique, defining property of the confessional poets, confessionalism is a central trope of American literature.

This book examines confessional writing not as a private, apolitical art, but rather one that demonstrates an engagement with the politics of literary influence, of gender relations, and of American culture more broadly.
