Negative Capability in the Verse of John Wieners
Literary Nonfiction. Poetry. How does one live a life between the lines of what one speaks and reads? How can the imagination, through experience, discover truth and beauty? In this second edition of NEGATIVE CAPABILITY IN THE VERSE OF JOHN WIENERS, originally published as a manifesto in 2001, the work of the poet John Wieners tries on the various robes of Negative Capability as sewn and tailored by the poet John Keats.
