Poetry Focus #17: Imagery with Stanley Kunitz's "The Round"

In today's podcast we take another look at imagery as we read a poem from Stanley Kunitz entitled "The Round." Let's focus on how the poet creates an effective image by adding texture to his work. Travel with the poet's eye as he works his way from the outward appearance of an encounter with a flower to a deeper, more magnified description of being captured by a muse. Kunitz then creates a shift by changing location as he moves from the out-of-doors inspiration to take up the bleak task of writing. The poem also manages to address the difficulty of the writing task once the inspiration has gone. You can find a copy of this poem as well as all the others used in our podcast at Also find a host of other valuable resources to help you in your close reading and preparation for the study of great works of literature. See you next time.
