Literary Nonfiction. Literary Criticism and History. Filling a niche that has long been neglected, THE CONVERSATION addresses issues of both writing and close and considered reading. Chapters focus on specific elements of poetic language and structure and offer writing exercises—which include both poetry and personal essays—that link directly to the featured works and the accompanying discussions.
