Metaphysical, agnostic, and ironic with a modernist voice.

“Howells’ reputation will continue to rest on his fiction and criticism, but of all his published writings, his poetry gives the most immediate sense of his state of mind and thus is essential to a full understanding of the writer in the last decades of his life. Flawlessly edited, this volume belongs in all college and university libraries.”
