Synopsis
In this highly accessible volume, poet Andrew Hudgins puts himself under the eye of scrutiny, spanning his career from a beginning writer seriously committed to his art to a mature author ready to reflect upon his role as a poet. The transition from one to the other comprises a rich lode of personal experiences, which Hudgins honestly and humorously details in essays ranging from his fascination with imagined worlds created by books to his appreciation of the works of nineteenth-century poet Frederick Goddard Tuckerman and contemporary poet Galway Kinnell.
Finally coming to rest on an examination of his own autobiography, The Glass Hammer, Hudgins reveals some of the ways he lied in that book--and some of the reasons for doing so. In a lighthearted manner, he manages to throw both light--and shadow--on the autobiography as a literary form. Amid charming anecdotes of his Southern upbringing, The Glass Anvil vividly records the depth of Hudgins's fascination with language, particularly as it mingles with the important issues of his life--religion, racism, Southern literature, and narrative poetry. This fascination is further documented in a free-wheeling interview which closes the book.
Engaging and amusing reading, The Glass Anvil will appeal to readers interested in contemporary poetry and Southern literature.
Andrew Hudgins's books include The Never Ending, After the Lost War: A Narrative, Saints and Strangers, and most recently The Glass Hammer. He is Professor of English, University of Cincinnati.
