Review: "Enthusiast! Essays on Modern American Literature is a polemical history of American literature told from the point of view of six of its major enthusiasts." "This book shows how successive major writers - Melville, Thoreau, Pound, Moore, Frank O'Hara and James Schuyler - have modernized and re-modelled Emerson's founding sense of enthusiasm. The book presents the writer as enthusiast, showing how enthusiasm is fundamental to the composition and circulation of literature. Enthusiasm, it is argued, is the way literary value is passed on."--Jacket.
