520    "Poetry makes nothing happen," wrote W. H. Auden in 1939, 
       expressing a belief that came to dominate American 
       literary institutions in the late 1940s--the idea that 
       good poetry cannot, and should not, be politically 
       engaged. By contrast, Michael Thurston here looks back to 
       the 1920s and 1930s to a generation of poets who wrote 
       with the precise hope and the deep conviction that they 
       would move their audiences to action. He offers an 
       engaging new look at the political poetry of Edwin Rolfe, 
       Langston Hughes, Ezra Pound, and Muriel Rukeyser. Thurston
       combines close textual reading of the poems with research 
       into their historical context to reveal how these four 
       poets deployed the resources of tradition and 
       experimentation to contest and redefine political common 
       sense. In the process, he demonstrates that the aesthetic 
       censure under which much partisan writing has labored 
       needs dramatic revision. Although each of these poets 
       worked with different forms and toward different ends, 
       Thurston shows that their strategies succeed as poetry. He
       argues that partisan poetry demands reflection not only on
       how we evaluate poems but also on what we value in poems 
       and, therefore, which poems we elevate
