Clare Cavanagh is associate professor and Herman and Beulah Pearce Miller Research Professor in Literature in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Northwestern University.
Winner of the 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism
"An outstanding book, the richness and depth of which is difficult to describe. It combines a huge amount of information with surprising insights, theoretical breakthroughs and a witty personal style. . . .will be a must read for many years to come." —Irena Grudzinska Gross, Princeton University
"Poets of the East and West are not so very different after all. Crossing the borders between them, Cavanagh brilliantly catches conversations on poetics and politics that are still going on. This wonderful book expands the reader's world."— Lawrence Lipking, author of The Life of the Poet
“There's something absolutely refreshing in Clare Cavanagh's approach to poetry: she makes us forget the heavy coats of erudition and the deforming zeal of current ideologies. Clare Cavanagh is a wonderful literary detective who loves poetry and understands its complex interactions with history.” — Adam Zagajewski, University of Chicago
“Clare Cavanagh makes the deep case for the lyric in this scrupulously researched, convincingly argued, and wide-ranging comparative study of modern poetry and politics. She writes from the West but continually turns to modern Russian and Polish poets as the touchstones for her complex polemic and moving defense of poetry.”—Edward Hirsch
Co-Winner of the 2010 Orbis Book Prize for Polish Studies, given by the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies
