Why We Love This

The Crowning Privilege by Robert Graves. New York: Doubleday, 1956. First printing. Six lectures delivered by Robert Graves, the Grand Old Man of British poetry, to the students at Cambridge, are gathered here with nineteen other essays on poetry. Often in feisty mood, Graves does not mind attacking his contemporaries or the great figures of the past as he discerns weakness or deviation from the path of the White Goddess, his poetic muse. We get a glimpse of his great intelligence.
