A Progressive Education: Poems

Richard Howard

Richard Howard has written some fifteen books of poetry — “some” implying that those fifteen have been knotted and relaxed into several further collectanea, but the poet pledges, with Progressive Education, that this work is quite fresh and free-handed, an avouchment the more readily made since the new book’s contents involve the disciplines and exemptions, as well as the vocabulary and, of course, the dramatis personae, of his own schooling.
