Coming of Age as a Poet: Milton, Keats, Eliot, Plath

by

To find a personal style is, for a writer, to become adult; and to write one's first "perfect" poem--a poem that wholly and successfully embodies that style--is to come of age as a poet. By looking at the precedents, circumstances, and artistry of the first perfect poems composed by John Milton, John Keats, T. S. Eliot, and Sylvia Plath, "Coming of Age as a Poet" offers rare insight into this mysterious process, and into the indispensable period of learning and experimentation that precedes such poetic achievement.
