"Barry Schwabsky carries a torch for outriders. Through an eclectic landscape of European literary modernists and contemporary 'heretics' in their tradition, he guides us with companionable verve. Schwabsky's wit—along with sharp analysis, erudite contextualizations, and refreshingly honest, self-interrogating approach—make this trip from Mallarme to Hell (Richard) provocative and fun." —Catherine Wagner
