Ecological Poetics of James Dickey: A Study in How Landscape Shapes the Being of Man
 Walker, Sue Brannan
2013 0-7734-4499-8 296 pages
An intelligent and provocative study exploring how the dynamic between nature and humanity animates many of Dickey’s major works. Its aim is to show the ways in which Dickey seeks to understand how it is possible for beings “to be” and what this means in terms of self-realization. This intelligent study makes a major contribution to our understanding of a major poet and helps us to see James Dickey’s poetic and fictional corpus in an entirely new light.

History, Religion and Politics in William Wordsworth’s Ecclesiastical Sonnets
 Delli Carpini, John
2004 0-7734-6411-5 230 pages
A complete and thorough study of William Wordsworth’s Ecclesiastical Sonnets emphasizing especially religion and history. The Ecclesiastical Sonnets are a sonnet sequence of 132 poems beginning with the founding of Christianity in England to the state of religion in Wordsworth’s day. Although a later work, they characterize many topics close to Wordsworth’s heart – the idea of history, pantheism, nature and Christianity. This book studies history and religion as well as Wordsworth’s use of sonnet sequence, a genre of his later writing. There has been very little written about the Ecclesiastical Sonnets. This book will help students to achieve a complete view of Wordsworth the young romantic as well as the elder statesman (poet laureate) of England.
