The Nineties Revisited (2001)
This chapter examines poetry collections of the 1990s including those by Jorie Graham, Charles Simic, and Donald Justice. It aims to trace any millennial intimations in the works of these poets and investigates whether endedness or the demarcation of an era make an unconscious if not an inevitable appearance in the works of poets who have other overt concerns and themes. The findings indicate that a staple of contemporary poetry is the autobiographical reminiscence which attests to William Wordsworth's long and various legacies and to the transformations of nostalgia during the past two centuries.
