Workshop Bibliography (There are links to Amazon.com for
these books, so that you can find them and buy them if you wish.
(except for "Poetry and Consciousness," which only seems to be
available from Powells. ) I don't have any commercial stake in
this whatever, so don't feel bound to Amazon on my account.
Obviously there are other choices you can make. An actual
bookstore would be MOST preferable. On line, I really like
Powells.com. Barnes & Noble would work too. I link to
Amazon because it's often possible to read an excerpt there for
free. Do compare prices though. Powells is often less
expensive, though the depth of its inventory is more limited. (Note
also that the bibliography I handed out had"Aurora Leigh"
mispelled. I have also linked to the complete text online.)
