Synopsis

The Game Changed: Essays and Other Prose presents works by prominent poet and lawyer Lawrence Joseph that focus on poetry and poetics, and on what it is to be a poet. Joseph takes the reader through the aesthetics of modernism and postmodernism, a lineage that includes Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, and Gertrude Stein, switching critical tracks to major European poets like Eugenio Montale and Hans Magnus Enzensberger, and back to American masters like James Schuyler and Adrienne Rich.



Always discerning, especially on issues of identity, form, and the pressures of history and politics, Joseph places his own poetry within its critical contexts, presenting narratives of his life in Detroit, where he grew up, and in Manhattan, where he has lived for 30 years. These pieces also portray Joseph's Lebanese, Syrian, and Catholic heritages, and his life as a lawyer, distinguished law professor, and legal scholar.



'Poetry of great dignity, grace, and unrelenting persuasiveness Joseph gives us new hope for the resourcefulness of humanity, and of poetry.'

-John Ashbery



'Like Henry Adams, Joseph seems to be writing ahead of actual events, and that makes him one of the scariest writers I know.'

-David Kirby, The New York Times Book Review



'The most important lawyer-poet of our era.'

-David Skeel, Legal Affairs
