FREEMAN, M. H.,
The Poem as Icon. A Study in Aesthetic Cognition.
Oxford University Press, 2020. 216p. Hardback. Series: Cognition and Poetics. Drawing on numerous well-regarded poets, critics, poets who have engaged in criticism, and her own original thinking, Freeman (emer., Los Angeles Valley College) has masterfully brought together, examined, and synthesized ideas that illuminate and provide nuanced understanding of how words on a page in the form of a poem might expand into a complex universe of meaning and emotion in a reader's consciousness.
