Prepositions the collected critical essays of Louis Zukofsky

"The essays in this volume may be viewed as steps in the excursion of a poet who wished to imbue criticism with something of the worth and method of his craft. Time usually qualifies the same with later information which takes an earlier feeling or inside, and the dates following the selections concede this fact. But the changes from the original drafts are few -- mostly omissions. As the title Prepositions of this book may propose -- the critic's constant intentions to the things he discussed directed, after all, such ways of speaking as: for, with and about. -- the author's prefatory note.
