Emmett Wilson, Jr.

Clancier discusses the use of memory and fantasy in a contemporary novel, emphasizing oedipal themes and the family romance. Her thesis is that in writing, especially in poetry, the writer moves directly from fantasy to writing without recollection or memory intervening. A too close proximity of memory would perhaps impede the free range of the imagination, leading to a repression of fantasy. For poets, memories are made to be forgotten, so that they may resonate in their work.
