Seeing and Saying, the follow-up volume to Self-Referentiality in 20th Century British and American Poetry, presents a range of essays dealing with the awareness in literature of the perceptional and representational hazard of saying the world of experience, sight and memory. The writers discussed range from the Renaissance to Post-Modernism, from Lady Mary Wroth to John Fowles.
