Contents A setting forth: the value of Allen Tate's poetry and thought, its current place and its context -- The irrefrangibly complicated study: toward the conception and presentation of the modern mind -- The genuine attitude for learning: the modern Southerner at home abroad and the "Death of Little Boys" -- Classicism, modernism, and the Confederate dead: the modern mind at the gates and the bank -- "Remarks on the Southern religion": toward the means, the ends, and the violence -- Six poems: from crisis toward belief and the fullness of history -- Out of silence and into silence: "Seasons of the Soul" and the ends of language -- The last things: toward the irrepressible conflict.
Abstract "This book reassesses the importance of Allen Tate (1899-1976), a former U.S. Poet Laureate, as a uniquely Southern and fundamentally religious poet and a critic. Through close analysis of Tate's essays and poems, the author argues that the arc of Tate's career presents a coherent effort to understand the Modernist's sense of the "dissociated sensibility, and that in his conversion to Catholicism, he found the means of rediscovering unified existence" -- Provided by publisher.
