This chapter considers the poetry of James Wright and proposes that the "breakthrough narrative" with which his work has often been described is less illuminating than an understanding of the poet's persistent, if fugitive and disguised, classicism.

Keywords:   James Wright, Robert Bly, John Crowe Ransom, classicism
