Mark Van Doren was for many years a luminary in the English department at Columbia University. He was also a much-admired American poet. Like all great teachers, Van Doren was celebrated not only for his special insights, but also for the wonderful way he had of bringing them to life for his students, who over the years included the young Richard Howard, John Hollander, and Allen Ginsberg. Both those insights and the warm and generous intelligence with which it was conveyed are very much on display in Van Doren's Shakespeare, which draws on this master teacher's long years in the classroom to present a play-by-play account of the works of the Bard. Van Doren deftly guides the reader though the labyrinthine intricacies of Shakespeare's language, the better to reveal the mysteries at the heart of his achievement, bringing out the astonishing beauties of Shakespeare's protean creation.

Про автора (2005)

Mark Van Doren (1894-1972) was born in Hope, Illinois, and received his A.M. and Ph.D. from Columbia, where he taught literature for nearly forty years and where his students included Thomas Merton, John Berryman, and Allen Ginsberg. It was there, and with his book The Liberal Education, that he helped promote the influential "great books" movement. Van Doren was literary editor of The Nation and president of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Among his books are critical biographies of such writers as Dryden and Hawthorne; a study of epic poetry, The Noble Voice; several plays; an auto-biography; novels; and many volumes of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize winning Collected Poems, 1922-1938.

David Lehman's new book of poems, his sixth, is When a Woman Loves a Man. He is the series editor of The Best American Poetry, the annual anthology he founded in 1988, and is currently preparing a new edition of The Oxford Book of American Poetry. His nonfiction books include The Last Avant-Garde: The Making of the New York School of Poets and Signs of the Times: Deconstruction and the Fall of Paul de Man.
