While Duncan has long been admired among poets, particularly the iconoclastic school that traces its "New American" lineage from Whitman to Pound to Olsen, he is little known by the general public. On first glance at the intriguing titles of the essays collected here"The Truth and Life of Myth," "The Sweetness and Greatness of Dante," "The Self in Postmodern Poetry"one anticipates revelations. But, sad to say, the essays are turgid and tedious, however erudite.

Trash Obsession
I'm adding a review only as a counter for the "editorial review" included on the overview of this book. Perhaps because it is more than 25 years later and these Duncan essays needed to steep--or maybe because the general reviewer didn't have the sophistication to handle the complexities of Duncan's thinking--these statements on poetics are invaluable and provocative. Given the publication of Duncan's important tome The H.D. Book and the impending publication of the biography about his life, interest in Duncan is having a resurgence. I didn't want new readers to see the review and think that it accurately reflects the overall feeling about Fictive Certainties. This is an important book that is well worth the time invested in it.

for speaking out regarding this unspeakably ignorant attack on an ultra-important book collecting the most significant contributions to late-modern, if not postmodern poetics by its most provocative theorist. (duncan himself professed to see no important distinction between modern and romantic.) fictive certainties--what a brilliantly ambiguous title!--is an essential complement to duncans H.D. book, the new american poetry's answer to coleridge's biographia literaria.
